My father was a pious person and an ideal father. No compensation or help can fill the void created in our lives owing to his untimely demise, said 24-year-old Ramdas, who lost his father Changdeo during the ghastly incident on January 25 last year.
Changdeo (51), a private security guard, succumbed to brain injuries after battling for life for more than two weeks after the incident. His father was on his way to his native place in Osmanabad district on the day of the incident to see the finishing touches being given to Ganesha temple being built there.
"He along with other villagers was keen to build a temple in the village. We had donated 15 trucks of sand for the construction of the temple. He was invited for a ceremony organised to place 'Kalas' on the temple," said Ramdas.
Ramdas, who has a younger brother and two sisters, all of them married, said the public authorities like MSRTC should pay attention towards welfare of staff to avoid such incidents. " We have filed a case against MSRTC. We have appointed a lawyer to put forth our stand," he said.
