33 killed as mini bus falls into gorge in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kishtwar

At least 33 people were killed and seven injured when a mini bus fell into a gorge in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kishtwar district this morning. Around 45 people were travelling in the bus, which was on its way from Keshwan to Kishtwar, when it veered off the road and fell into the gorge at Sirgwari around 7:30 am. Bodies of 20 passengers have been recovered so far.

Relief and rescue operation is underway and the injured are being shifted to hospital. Overloading, over-speeding and bad roads have led to tragic accidents in the hills of Doda, Kishtwar, Rajouri and Poonch districts in the past as well.
