Agra, Feb 16 (IANS) Seven people were killed and six injured when a Scorpio van rammed into a truck on Gwalior road early Saturday. The victims were returning to their native village in Delhi after visiting Jatashankar temple in Chatarpur, Madhya Pradesh.

The truck was stopped by some goons, allegedly patronised by the police, to collect hush money when the Scorpio coming behind it smashed into the truck, according to eyewitnesses.

The police, however, blamed the Scorpio driver for the accident.

Four people died on the spot, and three others on way to the hospital. Half a dozen other people, three in very critical condition, were admitted to a nearby hospital.

The police have ordered an inquiry into the incident.
