Eight children, including five sisters, were killed and over three dozen others injured when a truck overturned and fell over roadside huts at Nagla Patwari village near Aligarh Muslim University campus, late on Tuesday.

The injured have been admitted to a hospital.

The incident took place when the truck, loaded with bricks, got stuck in a pothole and the driver lost control of the vehicle.

Police said a crane that was sent to the site also overturned and the occupants had to be rescued by cutting the window panes delaying relief work.
