In a tragic incident, a schoolgirl was crushed under the wheels of a truck at Hajipur intersection in Ashashuni upazila of Satkhira on Tuesday morning.


The deceased was identified as Priti Swarnaker, 13, daughter of Parimal Swarnakar of Katakhali village and a class VII student of a local high school.


The accident took place as a cement-laden truck ran over Priti while she was going to school on foot, leaving her dead on the spot, said Biplab Kumar Debnath, officer-in-charge of Ashashuni Police station.
