At least 30 people were killed Wednesday when a passenger bus skidded off the road and rolled into the river Kalai in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.

According to the police, the bus was on its way from Poonch to Surankote when the accident occurred about 240 km north of Jammu.

Police had put the death toll to 15 earlier but later said that 30 people were killed.

It is the second road accident in the district in a little over a week. Fourteen passengers were killed and 20 wounded April 17 when a bus fell into a gorge in Saujian area of the district.
