A pall of gloom descended on the families of the victims who were charred to death in the Mahbubnagar bus accident in the wee hours of Wednesday.

Relatives and friends rushed to the Jabbar Travels office at Kalasipalyam early in the morning and frantically sought details about the accident.

One such enquiry was from the daughters of S Venkatesh Yadav. They came running into the office and were inconsolable once the travel agency confirmed the death of their father.

The mother of another victim, Srikrishna, came along with her relatives to the office and left for Hyderabad to receive her son’s body.

Colleagues of another victim Nanjunda Gowda K S, a resident of Uttarahalli who worked at Indivar Innovations visited the agency and got into a heated argument with the staff. Gowda and four other employees were travelling in the ill-fated bus.

Agency staff said since their booking had been done through another travel agency, they did not have a copy of the tickets.

When the argument escalated, a staff member of the agency pacified the employees of Indivar Innovations and arranged for the documents authenticating that their colleagues were travelling in the bus.

Similarly, friends and parents of Mohammed Asif were shocked at the news and left for Hyderabad.
