Three migrant labourers have lost their lives and eleven others have been injured after a truck ran over them while they were sleeping near Aasoda Toll Plaza on the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway in Haryana’s Jhajjar area.
10 injured persons have been sent to the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS), Rohtak and one person has been admitted to Bahadurgarh trauma centre for treatment.
“The labourers worked for a private contractor and they were engaged in the road repair work. After having dinner last night, they slept in the open along the road after placing a barrier on one side of the highway. However, the police patrol party requested them twice at night to get away from the road but to no avail. In the wee hours, the truck ran them over after hitting the barrier,” told Capt Shakti Singh, Deputy Commissioner.
