The bus had left Hyderabad on Friday night. It fell from the bridge and plunged to a depth of nearly 50 feet. The two drivers of the bus survived the accident. The IT company Tata Consultative Services (TCS) had set up a helpdesk for the victim's families to provide them round the clock information.
