An 11-year-old boy died and another teenager was grievously injured after a portion of the compound wall at Jawhar bus depot collapsed on them, on Thursday night. The two belonged to the same family and were visiting from Rajkot.

Both the boys had been waiting for an auto rickshaw near the compound wall when the ST bus—known as Lal Pari, hit it. The driver was reversing the vehicle when the mishap took place. “The parents had gone to the main road to get an auto rickshaw when the compound wall collapsed. Locals rushed in to rescue, but by then, one of them had already died,” said an eye-witness.
