Sourcing from All India Radio[edit]

The site of All India Radio has the news, but it does not have a stable URL, or I cannot find it. I can see the news at and putting Buldhana as a search string, but there is no URL. This source sites about the compensation and gives the number of casualties as 19. It says that the number can increase as there were about 60-70 people in the bus.

I think I've got a url for it. --Pi zero (talk) 15:19, 26 September 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes! Thanks for getting it. By the way, the Khiroda linked is not the one related here. The concerned Khiroda does not seem to have a Wikipedia article. I've taken the coordinates from Google Earth from my first-hand knowledge. Shivashree (talk) 15:43, 26 September 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The direction of travel was from Paturda to Shegaon if you need it. Students from nearby villages go to the Shegaon, nearby town, for schooling (OR, from local knowledge). Shivashree (talk) 16:08, 26 September 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Review of revision 1637889 [Not ready][edit]

Translating a detailed source from Marathi[edit]

The AIR news transcript in Marathi language is available here as a PDF file. I am translating it as follows (third para from bottom):

Nineteen people died and 15 critically injured when Shegaon-Paturda bus fell down from a bridge on Purna river near Khiroda in Sangrampur tehsil of Buldhana district. There are 10 women and 7 men among the dead. The bridge is very narrow and does not have protective railings. The bus driver lost the control as a tire burst and the bus fell down in the water 45 feet down after tumbling twice. Seventeen dead bodies are brought up from the river so far. The injured are admitted at a hospital in Akola. Two of the injured are reported to have died here. The relief work is still going on. Meanwhile, the MSRTC has announced aid of 100,000 to the kins of those dead.

Hope someone can incorporate it in the article. Shivashree (talk) 16:32, 26 September 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
