A 22-year-old medical student died after a lorry ran over her near Maruthi Circle on the Port Road under Malkapuram police station limits on Thursday late night.

The incident occurred when the medical student, along with eight friends, was going to Lambasingi on a pleasure trip.

The deceased has been identified as M. Sri Vidya, a third year medical student of Andhra Medical College (AMC) in the city. According to Malkapuram police, a group of nine friends including Sri Vidya started their journey to Lambasingi from the Convent Junction on Thursday night.

Sri Vidya’s father works as an assistant manager in a bank at Pendurthi.
