“Dharmendra Gond was going to get a water tanker for his sister’s wedding function. The other children joined in for a ride on the tractor. They had barely gone 500mts from their house when the tractor skidded off the road and overturned in the nearby field. Eyewitnesses said the tractor was being driven recklessly at a high speed,” additional superintendent of police (ASP) Suryakant Sharma said.
