Patna News : A Bihar teenager believed to have been abducted by two men on a bike flung herself off the two-wheeler onto the road to escape them but was crushed to death by a container truck that was just behind them, police said on Friday.
The incident took place in Dehri-on-Sone, an industrial township in western Bihar’s Rohtas district. Police said they were yet to identify the girl.
Witnesses said they saw two men on the bike with the young girl. She was crying and struggling to escape. When the bike came closer to a coal depot where some people were present, the girl flung herself on the road to escape her abductors. But she landed in front of a container truck that was behind the motorcycle and was crushed to death.
The two men on the bike escaped. But local residents caught hold of the truck driver, thrashed him and blocked national highway 19 to demand strict action against the guilty.
The container was on its way to Haldia in West Bengal.
