Hyderabad, May (IANS) Four college students were killed and eight others were injured in a ghastly road accident at Narsingi in Hyderabad's suburbs on Friday as the group was headed for a picnic, police said.

They had breakfast at a roadside eatery and were heading towards popular picnic spot Gandipet when their car rammed into a stationary truck at Khanapur crossroad near CBIT.

According to police, the car carrying a group of youngsters was proceeding towards Gandipet from Shankarpally.
