Tiny tot run over outside home

A one-and-a-half-year-old child, who was playing outside his makeshift home in Vaddarapalya in eastern Bengaluru, was killed when a goods vehicle ran him over on Wednesday morning, the Banaswadi traffic police said.

Bajrangi, son of Shivakumar, a construction labourer from Jharkhand, was playing outside the shed where his family was put up.

Around 9.30 am, the driver of a goods vehicle failed to notice the boy and drove it over him. The child’s parents were working at an under-construction building nearby. They rushed to the spot after hearing his cries and took him to hospital but it was too late, police said. Shivakumar’s colleagues caught the driver as he tried to flee and turned him over to the police.
