An employee of a shoe manufacturing unit in Tata Nagar was killed on Saturday morning after he was run over by a BEST bus near Govandi railway station.

The victim,Billal Khan (18),was walking towards the railway station with a load of shoes on his head,when the accident occurred. “Khan fell down and was crushed by the bus,” said Senior Police Inspector Tukaram Bhalerao of the Deonar police station.
