7-year-old killed in collision, rider sister critical
A seven-year-old boy died after an oil tanker rammed into a two-wheeler driven by his sister at Jabravita, on the outskirts of Siliguri, on Thursday.
Locals said Ankit Sahani died on the spot while his 19-year-old sister was admitted to the North Bengal Medical College & Hospital in a critical condition.
Police said the duo were not wearing helmets. Also, the tanker driver and cleaner have surrendered before them.
