Six people died and a total of 38 people were injured after a bus, on its way from Surinsar towards Srinagar, rolled into a deep gorge at Majalta in Jammu and Kashmir's Udhampur district, officials said on Saturday.

The accident happened at Chandeh village near Surinsar around midnight when the driver of the bus lost control over the vehicle which rolled down into the gorge, the officials said.

They said the driver had reportedly taken the interior route to dodge traffic police in view of the restrictions on the main Jammu-Srinagar national highway which was opened for traffic from Jammu to Srinagar on Saturday after five days of closure due to landslides caused by rain and snowfall.

However, a rescue operation immediately launched.

Reportedly,  All six people died on spot and 32 were rushed to the Government Medical college hospital Jammu for treatment.

The rescue operation is currently underway. This comes days after a bus rammed into an auto rickshaw and two cars after the driver became unconscious in Telangana's Ranga Reddy area on Wednesday.

Before that, a truck driver died and at least 15 people were injured after a collision between a truck and a Delhi Transport Corporation bus near ITO in the national capital in the early hours of Tuesday.

Very sad. But it is February - March 2019. This Vedic astrological alert against likely major accidents on road in J&K is for more care and appropriate strategy. May visit article - " The Year 2019 Astrologically for India" - published last year on 7 October , 2018. News reports on say that AAP headed by Kejriwal is going solo in Delhi having announced its candidates on 2 March 2019. No tie up with Congress. On the same date , some news reports of who is with whom in Andhra Pradesh and Telengana States in the south of India , have appeared. Overall picture of so called “Mahagathbandhan” across the country does not seem to be any solid. Thus it can be said that in substance , the political picture so far is a scattered one with few exceptions. These circumstances in the political landscape of the country look to be corresponding to this Vedic astrology writer’s predictive alert of last year on 7 October , 2018 through article - “ The Year 2019 Astrologically for India” - published at theindiapost.com. The text of the related alert in the article reads like this :- “ Now here , the year 2019 is in the focus about India , when multi- sections of society are likely to present a scattered political picture. A kind of political hysteria catering to varying vested interests looks to be coming up”. https://www.theindiapost.com/headline/the-year-2019-astrologically-for-india/
