Ten persons on Saturday (March 9) were killed in a head-on collision between a car and a truck on a national highway in Jharkhand’s Ramgarh district, the police said here.

Kuju outpost in-charge Bharat Paswan told reporters that the accident took place near Penki village on NH 33 in the early hours when the car was on its way to Ranchi from Aurangabad in Bihar.

The victims, including three women and two children, belonged to an extended family and were returning home after attending a ‘mundan’ ceremony.
