A seven-year-old girl was killed after a speeding car hit her in Ramgarh when she was returning from a local shrine along with her parents last night.

The victim has been identified as Khushpreet Kaur, a resident of Ramgarh village.

The father of the victim, Sanjeev Kumar, a driver, in his complaint to the police, said they had gone to a temple at 8 pm and when they were walking back home, a rashly driven Hyundai i10 car hit his daughter, who was walking ahead of them.
