The incident took place when the CRPF jawans were on their way to Neemuch from Bilaspur in their truck loaded with goods for their store.

However, when they stopped at Dodi-Aamla and were having tea and breakfast after getting down from their vehicle, a stationary truck loaded with goods suddenly overturned on them as it was hit by another carrier coming from Bhopal side trapping four jawans under it, Dodi police post in-charge Loksingh Marawi said.

Police along with local villagers rushed to the site and somehow managed to pull out the trapped jawans and rushed them to a nearby hospital.

A jawan, identified as Rajendra Singh (40) died on the spot while three others were referred to Bhopal after initial treatment, Marawi said.

Police informed the CRPF unit about the incident. The paramilitary officers reached the spot and took the body of the jawan to Gurdaspur (Punjab) by flight as the victim belong to that place.

Cops have seized both the trucks involved in the mishap but their drivers escaped from the spot.

Jawar police station is probing the incident further, Sehore district's superintendent of police (SP), Siddharth Bahuguna added.
