Girl, 14, dies and her mother is seriously injured after being thrown off a moving bus in India

A 14-year-old girl has died and her mother has been left severely injured after they were thrown off a moving bus following a sexual assault in India. Arshdeep Kaur and her mother Shinder, were travelling from their home in Punjab, northern India, to visit relatives when a group of about half a dozen men began harassing them. The men grabbed Arshdeep and made several attempts to ‘molest’ her and her mother, but instead of defending them, the bus staff joined in the sexual assault.

The incident took place on a near-empty bus near Moga, some 50 miles from the Pakistani border, in Punjab province. Mrs Kaur, 38, daughter Arshdeep, 14, and son Akashdeep Singh, had taken the bus from their home village to visit Mrs Kaur’s parents, Tribune India reports. Shortly after boarding the bus, a group of men had surrounded mother and daughter and tried to grab both of them. Mrs Kaur alerted the conductor about the harassment, he joined in and started abusing them both. After fighting off her attackers, Mrs Kaur ran through the bus to tell the driver to stop the bus, but according to her testimony, he started driving faster.

The assault continued until the bus slowed down and mother and daughter could break free, however as they attempted to get off the bus, Mrs Kaur says they were pushed. Arshdeep and Mrs Kaur both suffered serious injuries, and the 14-year-old later died in hospital. ‘No one helped. They first pushed my daughter off the bus, then me,’ Mrs Kaur told NDTV from her hospital bed today. Shortly after the pair had been pushed off, the bus stopped by the roadside and the alleged perpetrators, including the conductor, cleaner and driver fled the scene. The three could later be apprehended and police have launched an investigation into the incident.
