A 55-year-old woman was run over by a private bus following which irate locals set the vehicle afire and blocked National Highway 2 at Goverdhan crossing in Mathura, police said. Two policemen were injured in the brick-batting by the mob.

The incident took place this evening when a ‘Daggemaar’ bus ran over Bhagvan Devi, who died on the spot, following which a mob set the vehicle on fire, brick-batted and blocked the highway, they said. The locals alleged that these buses run illegally in the area.

Initially the mob chased away the police personnel who reached the spot to remove the blocked, police said. The situation was brought under control after Superintendent of Police (city) Alok Priyadarshi, SP rural Arun Kumar Singh, City Magistrate Ram Araj Yadav reached the spot with heavy police force and PAC, they said.

Police resorted to lathi charge to disperse the mob. “Situation has been brought under control and road blockade has been cleared, the protesters dispersed after the police and PAC used mild force,” ASP Kunvar Anupam Singh said.
