Srinagar: Several people are feared to have died after the vehicle they were travelling rolled down a gorge on Srinagar-Jammu highway on Thursday evening.
Deputy Commissioner Ramban Nazim Zia Khan confirmed to Kashmir Reader that a cab fell into Chenab river at Ramban.
The exact number of passengers travelling in the vehicle could not be confirmed till this report was being published.
A traffic police official from Ramban said that the cab driver travelling from Srinagar towards Jammu was signaled to stop. But he refused to obey and moved ahead.
