Datia (MP): Five persons, including a 11-year-old girl, were killed and 20 injured after a tractor-trolley overturned in Madhya Pradesh’s Datia district in the early hours of Friday, police said.

The victims were on their way to Ratangarh Mata shrine when the vehicle veered off the road near Maithana Pali around 4:30 am, overturned and plunged 15 feet into a culvert, a police official said.

“Prima facie, it seems the tractor-trolley driver dozed off which resulted in the accident,” Bhander Sub Divisional Officer of Police (SDOP) Karnik Shrivastava said.

He identified the deceased as Sonam (11), Kranti (17), Seema (30), Kamni (19) and Roshni (17), the official said.

Of the injured, 17 are admitted in Datia district hospital, while two have been referred to Gwalior and one to Jhansi, the SDOP said.

In-charge collector Kamlesh Bhargava and Superintendent of Police Virendra Mishra also visited the accident spot.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Mohan Yadav expressed grief over the deaths, an official said.
