Seven medical students, including a Bharatiya Janata Party MLA's son, were killed in a road accident around 11.30 pm on Monday, APA reports citing India Today.
The Centre has announced a compensation of Rs Rs 2 lakh each to the families of the victims. The injured will get Rs 50,000 each as compensation from the PMNRF.
Police said the students were passing through Selsura in a car when a wild animal suddenly appeared in front of their car. According to a preliminary probe, the person driving the car, in order to avoid the animal, swerved hard on the wheel, resulting in the vehicle falling into a ditch under a culvert. The impact killed the students, said Wardha SP Prashant Holkar.
