A four-year-old girl was allegedly killed after being run over by a car that was reversing. The incident took place at Bhiwandi area in Thane district, the police said on Wednesday, reported the PTI.

The girl, Alina Akram Mansuri, a resident of Nalasopara, was attending a wedding in the town with her parents on Monday evening, said a police official, according to the PTI.
