Pune, Jan 27: Akanksha Jain, an engineering student in MIT Pune, had a miraculous escape on Wednesday, as the killer bus ran over her and she survived death at merely a foot's length.
At 8 am, Akanksha rode her scooty from her house in Bhawani Peth for her college, ignorant about the fact that a killer bus from Swargate was on the loose. As the cctv footage shows, the bus being driven at breakneck speed went over her scooty with Akanksha underneath.
The brave girl just lay flat beneath the bus, with death hardly a foot above.
Akanksha survived with some minor injuries.
"Had my head struck the bus wheel, I could have been dead", says Akanksha. Her scooty was totally smashed.
Akanksha's mother Anita Jain says, it's a miracle.
Another lucky survivor was Abhijit Dotre, who was driving a car. The bus rammed into the car, but Dotre survived with a few scracthes. Dotre was driving the silver-coloured car. He had come out of his home at around 8 am for some urgent work, when the bus rammed into the vehicle.
The car swerved and hit a divider. Abhijit wanted to save himself and wanted to take a left turn, but the killer bus driver also took a left turn and first hit a red-coloured Figo and then stopped.
It was because of the two cars that the killer bus came to a standstill and Santosh Mane was caught.
