The accident occurred near Sapnavat police-post area of Dhaulana near Chajjupur village when the truck-tanker driver was unable to control the vehicle and turned over a passing-by three-wheeler.

"Seven others were injured who were crushed inside the three-wheeler. They were evacuated after the truck was lifted with the help of cranes and rushed to nearby hospitals," said Capt MM Baig, superintendent of police.

Two minors and a woman were among the injured and were reported out of danger.

The dead were identified as Ankur Kumar (25) and Noor Jahan (32), the police said.
