3 Staff declined to reach the MP village because of the suspicions of Covid-19, killed by the speeding truck
A truck in Ujjain on Wednesday morning mowed down three labourers, including a woman, who were forced to sleep on the roadside after residents of their native village refused to allow them to join.
The deceased is named as Vikram Singh, 65, his wife Bhoori Bhai, 55, and Badri Banjara, 50. During the lockout the three had returned from Jaisalmer house.
According to locals, on Tuesday evening, the three had reached their village of Mohanpura in the outskirts of Ujjain and were refused entry by villagers due to coronavirus alert.
They then left for the Ujjain Medical College where they needed their coronavirus check to be performed.
However, the experiments could not be carried out due to the late hours, and the three were forced to sleep on the roadside near Bhairu Gadh on the Ujjain Unhail lane.
The three of them slept on the lane, police claim, when they were crushed by a speeding truck early in the morning on Wednesday.
The truck driver has left the place after the crash.
Police confiscated the truck and said they are probing the charges against the villagers that they were not letting the three labourers inside the village.
