Gajoldoba, Jan 04 (Siliguri Journal) – Excitement stirred as a fire sparked in the dumper truck’s cabin on the flyover close to the recently opened Bhorer Alo bridge in Gajoldoba. Luckily, everyone is safe since the driver and co-driver got out in time, and no injuries have been reported.
Local reports indicate that a sand-loaded dumper truck heading to Ambari from Odlabari caught fire near the mentioned flyover.
