Fatal mishaps in Jharkhand
A truck on its way to Kanpur from Calcutta hit a tractor on GT Road in Chouparan here on Thursday afternoon, killing three persons on the spot.
The mishap took place at Danua Ghati, 62km from district headquarters.
Chouparan OC Nitin Kumar Singh said the truck was completely smashed and the driver, cleaner and a third person with them died.
