Three children were killed in separate accidents on Wednesday. While a boy was killed in his school, two girls died in road accidents.

A first standard student of OutReach school in Shantinagar, near Wilson Garden, died after being hit by a school van inside the school premises on Wednesday afternoon.

Police said M Manish (7) was playing in the campus with his friends after school hours. At 2.30 pm, one of the school vans leaving the campus hit Manish. He sustained head injuries.

Though the boy was rushed to a nearby hospital, doctors declared him brought dead. All this while, Manish’s mother, Ashwini, was waiting for him outside the school gate and was not aware of the accident.

Police said it is not clear what led to the accident.

Ashwini, a resident of Sudhamanagar, was shocked when she was told about the accident. “The school authorities did not inform Ashwini though she was right there. Twenty minutes later, they informed her that Manish had fractured his leg and was hospitalised,” the boy’s uncle Satish said.  Ashwini rushed to the hospital only to find her son dead. Police have detained van driver Praveen.
