An over-speeding car that was carrying smuggled liquor ran over three manual labourers and killed one of them near the SSB camp in Kishanganj.
The speed of the car was such that the vehicle was left completely damaged after the collision. According to sources, the foreign alcohol found in the car had been smuggled from West Bengal’s Panjipara.
A lot of labourers were returning home from work when the over-speeding car hit three of them. The trio was rushed to the Malda Medical College and Hospital with the help of the SSB soldiers, where one of them passed away.
The other two are still admitted at the hospital and are in a critical condition. It has been reported that there were three smugglers in the car, who managed to escape after the incident.
At present, the alcohol has been seized by the police and an investigation has commenced in the case.
