New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday conveyed his condolences for the loss of lives in the accident that took place in Chittoor earlier on Friday.

"Pained by the loss of lives due to an accident in AP's Chittoor dist. Condolences to families of the deceased & prayers with the injured," he tweeted.

At least 14 people were killed and 15 injured after a heavily laden truck rammed into roadside shops near Yerpedu Police Station in Andhra Pradesh's Chittoor district.
