Speeding tanker kills eight persons

Eight persons were crushed to death and four others injured after a speeding tanker hit them in Salauli area, triggering angry protests by locals who beat
the driver and cleaner to death.

The incident occurred last night when the driver of the petrol tanker, who was fleeing after running over two persons, rammed into a house and the vehicle overturned near Mahakhera village killing six others on the spot, police said on Saturday.

Agitated over the incident, locals beat the driver and the cleaner of the tanker to death, they said.
