According to the report, two of the victims, Sintu Mondal, aged 32, and Jaidev Prahlad Biswas, aged 45, were confirmed dead after being admitted to the Hindu Hriday Samrat Balasaheb Thackeray Hospital.

According to the report, the bus operated by the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) was travelling from Khopat bus depot to Pali in Raigad district when its engine caught fire.
