Mandya: In a heart rending incident, a 35-year-old woman and her 4-year-old daughter were killed on the spot when a tipper allegedly ran over them at Holalu village in the taluk yesterday afternoon. However, the woman’s husband escaped with minor injuries.

The deceased are Shashikala (35) and her daughter Lavanya (4). Shashikala’s husband, who escaped with minor injuries, is Devaraju, all residents  of Hadya village.
