An engineering student died of head injuries suffered when her hair got entangled in a wheel of a go-kart she was riding at a play zone here, police said. The woman, in her early 20s, died at a hospital on Thursday, a day after the incident, a senior official said.

Following the freak mishap, the police booked a case of negligence against the management of the play zone and closed the premises as it's license has expired, the official told PTI.

The woman had gone to the play zone with her family members. She and another person were riding the go-kart when her hair got entangled in the rear wheel of the vehicle after the helmet she was wearing came out, resulting in serious head injuries, the official said, citing preliminary investigation.

The license of the play zone was accorded by municipal authorities for only one year in 2017, but its owners were operating it despite the expiry, police said.
