Gurugram hit-and-run: 7-year old Ryan International student Jia succumbs to her injuries
The seven year old student of Ryan International School who was hit on May 9 by a speeding van has succumbed to her injuries. Parents of the girl have alleged that the school bus had dropped her much away from the assigned bus stop and that too on the wrong side of the road.

The incident happened on May 9 near Krishna Colony in Sector 9. While trying to cross the road, she was allegedly hit by a speeding van. The girl had suffered swelling in her brain and had been admitted to the ICU at Medanta Hospital in Gurugram. Doctors had been attending to her after she slipped into coma.

The parents have also alleged that the school bus that was carrying the girl was not carrying the mandatory conductor and attendant.

Even though the parents of the girl had registered a police complaint in Sector 4 police outpost, the police has failed to make any arrests so far with the bus driver still absconding.

The school principal, Peeya Sharma, claimed that a teacher was accompanying the girl but she had to go back when another student shouted for help. She had also said that the school will bear all the expenses for the child's treatment but had claimed that there was no negligence from their side.
