Six people are killed and several others are injured when a bus falls into a gorge in Jammu and Kashmir, India.
A bus carrying personnel from India’s high-altitude border police rolled off a mountainous road and fell into a gorge in Kashmir on Tuesday, killing at least six officers, police said. Kashmir police said on Twitter the injured were being flown to an army hospital in the Himalayan region’s main city of Srinagar, some 90 km (55 miles) from the accident site in Anantnag district. The bus was carrying members of the Indo Tibetan Border Police Force, a federal force specialising in high-altitude operations, mainly on the Indo-China border. A police officer told 35 people survived the crash but some were badly injured.
