GUNA: Ten people, including an infant, were killed and 47 others injured when their bus rammed into a stationary truck in the district in the early hours today, a police official said.

The private bus was on its way to Ahmedabad in Gujarat from Banda in Uttar Pradesh when it hit the truck's rear side on a road near Ruthiyai town around 4.30 am, Guna Police Station in-charge Vivek Asthana told PTI.
