LAHORE: A three-year-old girl was crushed to death under a truck in Liaqatabad police precincts on Saturday. The police impounded the truck while the driver was also taken into custody.

She was playing in the street near Akbar Shaheed Chowk when a rashly-driven truck of Water and Sanitation Agency (WASA) ran over her. She expired on the spot.

Local residents and passersby managed to capture the driver, who was later handed over to the police. They also staged a protest demonstration and tried to set the truck ablaze but the police reached the spot in time and managed to disperse the protesters.–Staff Reporter

A case has also been registered against the driver.
