AGRA, July 23: Six Kanwariyas were killed when a dumper truck hit a group of pilgrims returning to Gwalior from Haridwar while passing through Sadabad town in Hathras district of Uttar Pradesh early on Saturday.

One injured pilgrim has been admitted to a hospital in Agra, police said. The truck driver has been arrested. The accident occurred near Badar crossing under Sadabad police station limits.
