Kolkata, Aug 9 : Nine persons were killed on Tuesday in a road accident in West Bengal’s Birbhum district after an auto-rickshaw in which they were travelling collided with a bus.

The driver of the auto-rickshaw has been admitted to a hospital in an extremely critical condition.

All the nine passengers — mostly daily wage earners, were travelling by the auto-rickshaw.

A police team led by the sub- divisional police officer of Rampurhat, Dhiman Mitra had reached the spot.

It has been learnt that the collision took place near Telda village at Ranigunj- Moregram crossing on National Highway 60.

“The bodies of the deceased have been sent for autopsy,” Mitra said.
