It was going smoothly as per daily routine, 40-year-old Chandravati was on her way to Calcutta Parsi Club where she was working as a coach at present, and the accident took place near Red Road Saturday morning, a CAB official said.

“She was riding pillion on a two-wheeler when she was hit by a bus from behind near the Red Road. She was taken to hospital in a critical condition and passed away around 9 am,” the CAB official said.
