Patna: An irate mob in Patna under Shastri Nagar police station on Thursday torched a truck after its driver mowed over a 12-year old boy killing him on the spot.

As reported, around 6:15 am, Ayush Mishra, the son of Shalini Mishra and late Ranjit Mishra, left home on his bicycle that his mother had bought him only five days ago. His cousin Shivam was also with him on his own bicycle as the two proceeded to go to a nearby park to ride bike.

When the two reached near Abhinav Mansion, a truck coming from the same direction was making a right turn when Ayush's bike got caught under the right rear wheel of the truck. Tragically, the wheel ran over Ayush killing him on the spot.

While the driver of the truck managed to escape, the crowd caught hold of his assistant who was brutally beaten up only to be rescued by the police. The mob then went on to damage the truck before setting it on fire.

A student of Class V at the nearby St. Mary's School, Ayush's body was sent for an autopsy after which it was handed over to his family members. His body was shortly cremated.

Family members said Shalini was living with her mother-in-law after her husband died three years ago in Deoghar in a mishap.
