Two persons have died and another one sustained injuries when a two-wheeler carrying them was hit by a speeding bus at Ultadanga in north Kolkata, police said today.

Akash Dutta (11) and Bittu Sen (16), both pillion riders without helmets, died in last night's accident, while Mrinmoy Parikshit (23), the rider, also without helmet, was severely injured, a senior officer of Kolkata Police said.

"Two private buses were racing on the Ultadanga Main Road around 10.05pm when a scooty came between them. The biker lost his balance and one of the two buses hit his vehicle from behind. The two pillion riders fell off the vehicle and came under the wheels of the bus," the officer said.
