In an extremely tragic incident, Fifteen migrant labourers sleeping near the road were crushed to death by a truck near Gujarat's Surat.
A dumper truck ran over the sleeping labourers on the Kim-Mandvi road killing 12 on the spot.
Some injured labourers have been taken to a nearby hospital.
Three of the eight injured died during treatment taking the total fatalities to 15, police said.
The truck driver apparently lost control of the vehicle after it hit sugarcane hanging out of the tractor trolley coming from the opposite direction.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed grief on twitter and also announced a compensation of ₹ 2 lakh for the families of the victims and ₹ 50,000 for each injured labourer.
