A seven-year-old boy, who was cycling on a road in suburban Jogeshwari (West), died after he was knocked down by a water tanker, a police official said on Tuesday.
The incident happened on Saturday when the boy was cycling on the S V Road without supervision of his family members, he said.
The victim's mother was at her workplace at the time of the accident. Apparently, neighbours told the boy not to cycle in the middle of the road, but he did not listen to them, said the official.
The boy suffered injures after being hit by the water tanker and was rushed to civic-run Cooper Hospital, where he was declared dead by doctors, he said.
The water tanker driver, Mohanlal Ramdhaar Yadav (46), was arrested and booked under sections 304A (causing death by negligence) and 279 (rash driving) of the Indian Penal Code, the official added.
