Residents of Calvim demand judicial probe into Bus Tragedy

Residents of Calvim and Aldona demanded that the government initiate a probe under a retired judge into the Calvim bus tragedy by February 29. They’ve threatened to boycott the March 3 polls if this is not done. The government had ordered a magisterial inquiry immediately after the incident on February 18.

Stating that they were fed up with the different versions of the accident making it to the press every day, over 200 residents of Calvim, Aldona and Mayem, present at the memorial service in honor of the dead, were firm they would not cast their votes if the judicial inquiry wasn’t initiated by the given date.

Six people, including four children, drowned to death when the bus they were travelling in slipped into the Mapusa River at the Aldona-Calvim ferry point.
