In a tragic incident, three women farmers were killed and two others injured after a truck rammed into them near the Tikri border in Haryana's Bahadurgarh early Thursday. The incident comes weeks after the death of eight people in Uttar Pradesh where a car ran over a group of protesting farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri, leading to violence.

The accident on Thursday took place at Pakoda chowk, where the women were waiting for an autorickshaw to go to Bahadurgarh railway station.

After participating in the farmers' protest against the Centre's agri laws at the Tikri border, the women were returning to their village in Mansa district of Punjab.

The truck driver fled from the spot after the accident, the police said.

The deceased were identified as Chhinder Kaur (60), Amarjeet Kaur (58) and Gurmail Kaur (60). They belonged to Kheeva Dyaluwala village in Mansa district.
The injured persons were rushed to PGI Rohtak, the police said.

Hundreds of women have been participating in the ongoing farmers' protest on the outskirts of Delhi.
