The labourers and their family members were travelling from Betia in Bihar to Khanna and Ludhiana to work in the farms ahead of the paddy sowing season. At least 65 persons were travelling on the bus.

The driver took a halt in Khanna when a speeding truck hit the bus from behind. The bus then hit an electricity transformer.

City 2 station-house officer (SHO) inspector Gurmeet Singh said the injured, including women and children, were taken to the civil hospital. He added that prima facie, it seems that the truck driver lost control of the vehicle after one of its tires burst.

The police will take action after recording statements of the injured, he added.
