BAR­NALA : One per­son was killed and five in­jured when an au­torick­shaw they were rid­ing was hit by a bus from the rear in Bar­nala on Tues­day.

The in­jured were rushed to the civil hospi­tal from where Gurmeet Singh, a clerk in the deputy com­mis­sioner’s of­fice, was re­ferred to Dayanand Med­i­cal Col­lege and Hospi­tal where he died.

The auto driver, Harmel Singh, and a data en­try op­er­a­tor in the child devel­op­ment project of­fice Har­jin­der Singh were re­ferred to other hos­pi­tals.

Gurmeet’s col­leagues al­leged that no doc­tor was present in emer­gency ward of the civil hospi­tal to at­tend to the in­jured. Em­ploy­ees unions have sub­mit­ted a mem­o­ran­dum to the health min­is­ter through the deputy com­mis­sioner de­mand­ing dis­ci­plinary ac­tion against neg­li­gent doc­tors.
