Greater Noida: A mob pelted stones on police and set ablaze a car on Thursday after a girl was killed in a road accident here, forcing the cops to resort to lathi-charge them.
The victim, a class XI student, was on her way to college in an auto which turned turtle after being rammed by the speeding car, police said.

While Neelam died on the spot, three other passengers including the car driver sustained injuries and were admitted to the hospital, they said.

Enraged over the accident, local villagers blocked the traffic by keeping the victim`s body on the road and set ablaze the vehicle involved in the accident, besides damaging over half a dozen other vehicles.

Police resorted to mild lathi-charge after which the crowd was dispersed, they said.
