Amethi:  A 14 year old boy was killed and another seriously injured after they were run over by a road-roller in Amin village in UP's Amethi, Gauriganj Police said today.

The accident took place last night while the boys were sleeping outside their house, the police said.

Abid, 14, died on the spot while his cousin Shakil, 13, suffered serious injuries. He was admitted to a trauma centre in Lucknow, a police officer said.
