13 drown as Indore-Pune bus plunges into Narmada

The MSRTC bus coming from Indore to Pune skidded into Narmada river from Khalghat bridge at Dhar in MP. Fifteen people have been rescued. The bus was salvaged from the flooded river using heavy cranes.

PUNE, July 18: Thirteen passengers were killed when their bus coming from Indore to Pune fell into river Narmada at Dhar on Monday morning. Those drowned included four women and a child.

The Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) bus had left Indore for Pune at 7:30 am and had covered 80 km when it skidded from Khalghat bridge on the Agra-Mumbai highway. The accident occurred in Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh.

The conductor and the driver have not been traced. It is said there were about 50 passengers in the bus when it plunged into the river, breaking the railing of a bridge in Khalghat. Heavy rain was hampering search and rescue operations. Fifteen people have been rescued. The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) has joined the rescue work.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced an ex gratia relief of Rs 2 lakh each to the kin of the deceased and Rs 50,000 to those injured.

"The district administration officials have reached the site. The bus has been salvaged. I am in constant touch with Khargone, Dhar district administration. Instructions have been given to make arrangements for proper treatment of the injured," Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan said.
