A four-member team of experts from the Forensic Science Laboratory -, Madhuban, Karnal, visited the accident spot where cardiologist Pankaj Gupta, 45, and his five-year-old daughter Lineshiya were run over while they were waiting for the child's school bus.

We have collected blood samples, hair with flesh and a part of skull from the spot - and blood stains and pieces of flesh from the bus that mowed down the duo, a team member told IANS.

We have now booked bus driver Harish Singh, 32, of Haryana's Jhajjar district under Section 304 part II -, a non-bailable offence, and have informed the court, Police Commissioner Alok Mittal told IANS.

The change was made on technical ground and not under any pressure. We examined the case properly and decided to impose stringent section of Indian Penal Code -, he said before the driver was re-arrested.
