At least 25 people were killed and 17 injured in a bus accident in the mountainous Doda district of Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday morning, police said.

The accident took place when the bus skidded off the road and fell into Neeru nullah, a tributary of Chenab river at Pul Doda in Doda district, about 170 km north-east of Jammu, the state's winter capital.

The bus was on its way to the district headquarter town of Doda from Bhaderwah.
