Ten injured as vehicle plunges into gorge


Tawi, Mar 28:  In a harrowing accident, a mini-bus veered off course and plunged into a ditch in Manganad village of Poonch district in the Jammu division, leaving ten individuals injured, including two children. The severity of the incident led to the complete destruction of the matador, prompting immediate medical attention for the wounded, who were rushed to Raja Sukhdev Singh District Hospital for treatment.

According to initial inputs, the mishap occurred on Thursday when the mini-bus, carrying approximately ten passengers, met with an unfortunate accident, resulting in significant injuries to those on board.

Eyewitnesses recounted the horrifying scene as the vehicle lost control and careened into the ditch, causing extensive damage. Prompt response from nearby villagers and authorities facilitated the swift evacuation of the injured to the district hospital, where they are currently undergoing medical care.
