There has been a major accident in Kullu, Himachal Pradesh. A bus fell into a ditch here, in which 20 people died, while 30 people were injured. This incident happened in Banjara of Kullu.
The bus went below 500 feet deep in the ditch near the Bhiyoth bend, one kilometer forward from Banjar in Kullu district. The bus was going from Kullu to Gadhujishani. It is expected to be about 40 to 50 people on the bus. Police and local people have reached the spot to remove the injured from the ditch. The rescue operation was carried out with the help of local people between the flood surge of the river.
The accident was so horrific that the bus was scattered. Those who survived the accident said that despite fierce mischief we survived alive. It is not less than a miracle. 12 women, 6 girls, 7 children and 10 youth injured in the accident have been rescued. At the same time, some conditions are serious. There are administrative officers and police forces on the spot. Due to overloading, it did not move on the climb and went back to the trench. Transport Minister Govind Singh Thakur has ordered an inquiry into the accident. Five ambulances have been sent to Kullu from Mandi district.
Meanwhile, CM Jayaram Thakur has written in a tweet that I am sad about the news of 20 deaths and nearly 25 people were injured in a bus accident near Bazar in Kullu.
