LAHORE – A 20year-old girl was killed and her husband wounded seriously when a rashly-driven minibus smashed into the motorcycle they were riding in the Kahna area, police said on Thursday. The couple contracted marriage just five days ago.

A resident of Laliyani, Asghar Bhatti, along with his wife, Sumera Bibi, was on his way to visit a close relative’s house to attend a food-party arranged for them, when a recklessly driven bus hit the two-wheeler near Rohi Nalla.

They sustained serious injuries and were rushed to a nearby hospital, where Sumera was pronounced dead while the condition of her husband was reported to be critical. The bus driver managed to escape from the crime scene. The police have impounded the bus and are investigating.
