A teenage girl died on Wednesday evening after she and her mother jumped off a running bus after being allegedly molested by the helper of the bus.

According to the sources, a woman with her daughter was travelling on a bus (registration number PB 10C 1813) belonging to Orbit bus company when the bus conductor along with another man started misbehaving with the duo.

In order to avoid the molestation bid, the mother and daughter jumped from the speeding bus and sustained serious injuries.

They were taken to a government hospital in Moga, where the girl was declared brought dead.

“The woman was travelling with her daughter in Orbit bus. The woman is injured while her daughter is dead. We are yet to identify the helper whom she has accused of molestation. The bus driver absconded from the spot along with the conductor and helper,” said Avtar Singh, SHO, Baghapurana police station.

H S Pannu, SP (D), Moga police, said, “We are in the hospital to record the statement of the woman and an FIR will be registered after verifying the facts. The woman has alleged molestation but we are still to verify the claims.”

The Orbit bus network in Punjab is being run by Orbit Aviation Private Limited Transport Company with Punjab deputy Chief Minister, Sukhbir Singh Badal, as one of the co-owners.
