A minor girl was crushed to death while her elder brother was injured when a speeding dumper hit them while overtaking a bus  in South Delhi on Friday.

According to the police, the incident occurred around 7 am in the morning when Raju, 14 and his younger sister Ishrat, 12, were going to school in Sarita Vihar near Shaheen Bagh.

Police said that when the children were walking near the footpath on Shaheen Bagh road, the dumper lost balance due to a collision with the bus. As a result, the children were crushed under it.

Ishrat and Raju were rushed to a nearby hospital by the local police. Whereas Ishrat was declared brought dead, Raju is still undergoing treatment, said a senior police official.
