Our three brothers Ajay, Rickson and Velasli were travelling back to Nashik last night by bus, when their bus braked very sudddenly. A few passengers were injured, including Ajay. They were taken to the Indira Gandhi Civil Hospital, Bhivandi. The police were recommending not to make an FIR. In the end, some Salesian priests and personnel from Provincial House were able to reach Bhivandi and transfer the brothers to Andheri.
It is not clear yet whether Ajay has been admitted to Holy Spirit. From what I hear, all 3 brothers are resting in the Province Infirmary at Dominic Savio, Andheri.
Ajay and Velasli are due to finalize their admissions to the B.Ed. course this morning. Fr Nelson is trying to ensure that, and then he will move to Mumbai to see the brothers.
Your prayers are requested.
Update, 1100 hrs: Just spoke to the brothers. Ajay seems okay. He is going to the doctor at Holy Spirit once again just now, perhaps he might need a minor surgery. Fr Nelson is at the College seeing to the admissions, and will move to Mumbai after that.
