Dimapur, Dec. 17. Maram 17 Dec: Holiday joys of Don Bosco College were brought to an abrupt end when a passenger bus heading for Tungjoy village from Senapati district  head-quarters met with an accident before reaching the Makhan bridge at 2.00 pm on the last day of the examinations. The ill fated bus failed to negotiate a bend and fell into a gorge killing two.
The bus named Up-Land Travels had its history of accidents. Of the injured victims, 13 of them have been admitted in different hospitals at Imphal. The two deceased  passengers belonged to Shajoub and Makhel villages.  Adani Manehrri (Cl 11 F) studying in Don Bosco Hr. Sec. Arts and Commerce, Maram succumbed to his injuries in the hospital.
Angels in the form of 22 Assam Rifles of the 57 Mountain Divisions rushed to the spot with all their equipments and rescued the injured from the bus. The injured were taken to the unit hospital and were given medical care. Col. SB Rana himself was present in the hospital to give the direction.
