Kalyani: Two brothers died and a man has been injured after a lorry rammed into a sweetmeat shop at Chapra in Nadia district today.
The mishap occurred today morning. The sweetmeat shop, now in shambles, is located near the BDO office at Chapra.
The two deceased youths, Suban Dhaki and Sabdul Dhaki, had gone to the shop to have tea. As they were seeping the tea in the wintry weather, a passing by lorry lost control and rammed right into the shop made of concrete walls and tin roof.
Most of the customers managed to jump out to safety but the Dhaki brothers came under the wheels of the lorry and were crushed to death on the spot. Another man, who was seated next to them, suffered critical injuries.
The injured has been admitted to Shaktinagar District Hospital at Krishnanagar and doctors said that his condition is fragile. Police have managed to confiscate the killer lorry but the driver has gone into hiding.
