VASCO: A 16-year-old girl from Velsao was injured as she came under the debris of a bus shelter at Velsao on Monday. Some other persons, who were inside the bus stop, escaped unhurt as they made a hasty retreat.
According to locals, Shrutika Naik and two to three other persons were standing under the concrete bus shelter at around 8 am to go to Margao when almost the entire bus shed came down crushing to the ground. Except, Shrutika all others ran towards the road.
Shrutika, who sustained injuries to her forehead and right hand, was pulled out by some people who had an escape. She was immediately rushed to the nearest private clinic and was administered treatment.
Many bus sheds in Velsao and vicinity are in dangerous condition and vulnerable due to the vibrations caused by the movement of passenger and goods trains.
