Two schoolchildren had a miraculous escape when the scooter they were riding fell in an uncovered sewage pit alongside the Landran road near the entry of Swaraj Enclave in Kharar here on Tuesday.

Eyewitness Mewa Ram, a mechanic in Swaraj Enclave, said, "Around 2:15 pm, the students were going from Kharar to Santemajra side. The duo did not see sewage stagnated alongside the road and fell in the pit. Their scooter almost sank in it. One more person, Karma, and I helped the kids take it out with the help of a rope."

Mewa said their school uniforms and books were all spoiled in the sewage. "The scooter's repairs will cost them around Rs 4,000," he said, adding that the two boys pushed the two-wheeler on their way back home.

In 2020, the Kharar Municipal Council had bagged an award in the 50,000 to 1 lakh population category under the Indian Swachhata League.

The Tribune, now published from Chandigarh, started publication on February 2, 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan). It was started by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a public-spirited philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising four eminent persons as trustees.

The Tribune, the largest selling English daily in North India, publishes news and views without any bias or prejudice of any kind. Restraint and moderation, rather than agitational language and partisanship, are the hallmarks of the paper. It is an independent newspaper in the real sense of the term.

The Tribune has two sister publications, Punjabi Tribune (in Punjabi) and Dainik Tribune (in Hindi).
