Bulandshahr: A seven-year-old boy was crushed to death by a speeding mini-truck near here, triggering a protest by locals which clashed with police after they tried to prevent the mob from injuring the surrendered driver.

"The boy was killed yesterday after the mini-truck ran over it while he was crossing a road in Rabupura town. Some angry locals chased the vehicle on their motorcycles. The driver left his truck outside Kakod police station and surrendered before police," SSP R K S Rathore said.

"However, the locals set the truck ablaze and demanded that the driver be handed over to them. It led to clashes and the locals pelted stones at police," he said.

The SHO and five other policemen were injured in the clash, he said.
