Bus plunges into river in India killing 15


Seven people were also injured in Tuesday’s accident in Uttarakhand state, situated almost 250 miles northeast of New Delhi.

The cause of the tragedy is still unknown but more than 110,000 people are killed annually in traffic accidents in India, with many deaths being blamed on reckless driving, ageing vehicles and poorly maintained roads.

The Himalayan state is a popular holiday destination for people seeking to escape the country’s summer heat.

It is also an area of religious pilgrimage with four temple towns located in the mountainous region.
