SRINAGAR:

A bus carrying personnel from India’s high-altitude border police rolled off a mountainous road and fell into a gorge in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) on Tuesday, killing at least six officers, police said.

Police said on Twitter the injured were being flown to an army hospital in the Himalayan region’s main city of Srinagar, some 90km (55 miles) from the accident site in Anantnag district.

A police officer told Reuters that 35 people survived the crash but some were badly injured.
