5 minors among 11 killed in Valley bus accident
Five minors, including twin brothers and a three-month-old girl, were among 11 people killed when a packed taxi skidded off a narrow, unpaved road and rolled down 150 feet onto another road in Jammu and Kashmir’s Ramban district on Saturday. The dead included the mother of the twins. The vehicle was on its way to Rajgarh from Chanderkote in Ramban when the accident took place at around 10:30 am, said Ramban deputy commissioner Showkat Aijaz Bhat.
“I have asked the assistant road transport officer to submit a report to me to fix the responsibility but the vehicle was also overloaded.
Five minor children have also lost their lives in the mishap,” Bhat said, adding that Rs 5,000 each had been given
to the injured for their treatment.
