india Updated: Jan 27, 2009 12:07 IST

At least three people were killed and 15 injured, eight of them seriously, when the tractor-trolley in which they were travelling turned turtle in an Uttar Pradesh village, the police said on Monday.

"The mishap took place at around 8.30 pm on Monday in Khaga locality of Fatehpur district," police inspector Ramesh Pratap told IANS on telephone.

The driver had swerved the vehicle to avoid hitting some buffaloes that came suddenly in the way, and it turned turtle. Fatehpur is some 200 km from Lucknow.

The injured are being treated in the district hospital. The people in the trolley were returning from a religious function in Kaushambhi.

Police said the condition of eight people was serious.
