The incident took place on the Bijawar-Bajna road in Madhya Pradesh's Chhatarpur district during the afternoon hours on Monday. According to the Additional Superintendent of Police Vikram Singh, a family had purchased a new tractor-trolley in the Jujharpur village and was headed to a local temple with some other villagers also being along for the ride.
