The death toll in Ramban road accident has risen to 20 people.  17 people were also injured of whom 6 are critical.  The accident happened on Saturday when a minibus fell into a deep gorge on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway near here.

On reaching Kela Morh near Maroof, the driver lost control and the vehicle rolled down the 200-ft-deep gorge, she said.

Police and army personnel, along with local volunteers, were engaged in the rescue operation.

It took time for the rescuers to reach the ill-fated vehicle due to the steep slope. (Agencies)
