A migrant adivasi woman was killed and around 40 others injured when a tractor-trolley carrying a marriage party turned turtle at Mondikatta village in Palvancha mandal on Monday.

The incident occurred when the jam-packed tractor trolley turned upside down on the periphery of Mondikatta village after the tractor driver lost control of the wheel. 

An adivasi woman from Chhattisgarh, a member of the marriage party, aged around 38 years, died on the spot and several other occupants of the trolley comprising women and children suffered multiple injuries in the accident, sources said.
