Guwahati: In a tragic accident, a girl was killed in a road mishap in Guwahati’s Ganeshguri area on her way to school on Thursday morning.
The girl, identified as Priya Kumari, was a Class 11 student of Little Flower School at Hatigaon and was riding pillion on a scooter with her sister when their scooter collided with a school bus.
The accident occurred near Rajdhani Masjid, just a few metres away from Little Flower School.
