Emergency services took seven injured passengers in the Sawai Madhopur district of Rajasthan state, 235 miles (375km) south of New Delhi.

About 20 persons are feared dead as a bus in which they were travelling plunged into Banas river in Sawai Madhopur district of Rajasthan on Saturday morning.

The pilgrims were on their way to a Ramdevra Hindu temple situated at Malarna Chour on the Rajasthan-Madhya Pradesh border. A study of 2016 traffic deaths revealed that 150,785 people had died across the country in road accidents that year. The driver of the bus lost control over the bus and it fell into the river Banas after breaking the railing of the bridge, the police said. "The bus driver was also killed in the incident", an officer said. The exact cause of the accident will be ascertained after an inquiry. My condolences are with the families of the deceased.




Local TV channels reported that the bus which was carrying over 50 people, all on a pilgrimage from Sawai Madhopur to Lalsot, had been allegedly driven by its minor conductor while the driver was taking a rest.

Vasundhara Raje, the chief minister of Rajasthan, tweeted that the state government has been closely monitoring the situation.
