Two employees of S Nairs Transport have been taken in for questioning by Fiji police in relation to the death of a 37-year-old welder who died after being crushed by a bus at the company’s depot in Nasinu yesterday.

The two, a 24-year-old mechanic and a 17-year-old, are alleged to have turned on the ignition of the bus that crushed the deceased who was doing repair works underneath.

Fiji Police spokesperson, Ana Naisoro said the 24-year-old mechanic had instructed a 17-year-old to turn on the steering as he wanted to tighten the dragging arm.

Upon turning on the steering wheel, the bus suddenly jerked forward and the rear tyre went over the deceased.

The deceased was rushed to the CWM Hospital in Suva by his colleagues where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

Police are awaiting post-mortem report as investigations continue.
