THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Kerala Assembly on Thursday expressed deep grief at the death of three schoolchildren who were run over by a speeding tipper lorry at Edappon near Mavelikkara on Wednesday.

Speaker K. Radhakrishnan made a special mention of the issue and said the incident was similar to the one that had happened at Iritty in Kannur some time ago. Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan said the government would see what could be done to avert such incidents in future.
