Eleven people, including women and children, were killed and 22 others injured when the tractor-trolley in which they were travelling overturned in Neemuch in Madhya Pradesh on Thursday, officials said.
Neemuch sub-divisional magistrate Aditya Sharma said the dead included four children and six women.
The accident took place near the Kanka four-lane barrier when the group of pilgrims -- from Kharerikachariya in Mandsaur -- was returning from Sawalia, a well-known pilgrimage site for Hindus.
This was the second accident in as many days involving a tractor-trolley. On Wednesday, three people died near Atrimata in Neemuch when their tractor-trolley overturned.
The injured have been admitted to the district hospital in Neemuch, around 400km from state capital Bhopal.
