Janani (7), who was run over by a water tanker tractor in Lingarajapuram.

A seven-year-old girl, on her way to a shop to buy chocolates for her brother’s birthday, was run over by a water tanker tractor in Lingarajapuram, East Bengaluru on Tuesday morning.

Deceased Janani was a resident of Lingarajapuram. She lived with her parents, Shakthivelu and Sophia and brothers, Dhanush and Nikhil.

According to the police, the incident happened between 9.30 and 9.45 am. Janani had come out of her house alone to buy chocolates for her brother Nikhil. It was Nikhil’s birthday. The road near her house was a narrow one. A tractor could just squeeze through, the police said.

The tractor-turned-water tanker was driven in a rash and negligent manner running over Janani near her house. Hearing her scream, neighbours rushed to help and shifted her to a hospital. She was declared brought dead. Police rushed to the spot and seized the tractor.

The cops arrested the tractor’s driver, Pradeep Kumar (36). Banaswadi traffic police have registered a case of accidental death due to rash and negligent driving and are investigating.
