  • A seven-year-old boy died after  an oil tanker rammed into a two-wheeler driven by his sister at Jabravita, on the outskirts of Siliguri, on Thursday.

    Locals said Ankit Sahani died on the spot while his 19-year-old sister was admitted to the North Bengal Medical College & Hospital in a critical condition.

    Police said the duo were not wearing helmets. Also, the tanker driver and cleaner have surrendered before them.
