Overloaded, Ashok Travels Bus takes 42 lives in Nagwain
Ashok Travels Bus traveling between Kullu to Ani plunged into the river Beas near the Hanuman temple in Nagwain. The accident took place around 3:30 PM. The bus was loaded with more than 70 passengers. According to sources, this is a case of sheer negligence because the bus was not only overloaded but the driver was talking on mobile phone while driving. Our sources told us that NHPC helped the rescue team in taking out the drowned bus. As they provided 3 Hydra Cranes from the Garsa workshop which is close to the accident site. People from nearby River Rafting center also came to the spot for help.
