In a tragic incident, an eight-year-old boy and his 32-year-old uncle were killed after a car rammed into a group of people in Surat city, Gujarat, late Friday night. Five others were injured in the mishap.

The accident occurred around 11.30 pm on the city's outer ring road, according to Utran police station officials. 'The driver lost control of the car, which veered off the road and ploughed into the group sitting by the roadside,' the police stated.
