Earlier today, a 5-year-old child and her mother were killed in a hit-and-run accident that occurred at Behali in Assam’s Biswanath district.
A speeding dumber reportedly collided with them, resulting in the child dying on the spot.
Meanwhile, the wounded mother was rushed a nearby hospital where she is admitted in a critical condition.
According to information, the dumper allegedly fled the scene following the accident.
