Mother, son die in Dhavali mishap

In an accident at Dhavali in Ponda on Tuesday, a mother and her minor son were killed. The accident took place when the minor boy was trying to overtake another vehicle in front of him at Dhavalimol.

Police said Mehboob Nadaf, 17, of Dhavali was coming to Ponda with his mother Shamshad Shaikh, 35, on a motorcycle on Wednesday afternoon at around 5.15pm. When he reached Dhavalimol, he saw a tempo was moving slowly in front of him, so he tried to overtake without knowing that a passenger bus was coming in the opposite direction. In the confusion, he dashed the tempo and fell on the road.

His mother died on the spot, while Mehboob was declared 'brought dead' at the Ponda health centre. [TOI]
