Ten pilgrims from Punjab were killed and 45 others were injured when a bus carrying them rolled down a gorge on a sharp curve near Dhaliara in Kangra district, about 60 km from Dharamsala, on Thursday.

The pilgrims from Amritsar were on their way to the Jawalaji shrine in Kangra district.

Sources said the driver of the bus lost control as he tried to save the bus from a collision with a Maruti car coming from the opposite side. He hit the car but no harm was caused to the car occupants. The bus rolled down into about thirty feet gorge.

The pilgrims in the bus were traders from Amritsar who came to pay obeisance at Chintpurni Mata temple in Una district and Jawalaji Mata temple in Kangra district on every ‘Sagrandh’ (full moon night).

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh has expressed his condolences and assured all possible help for the victims.
