Two persons were killed and sixteen others were injured, four of them critically, when an over-speeding mini-bus turned turtle at Dhangri-Kaleeth in Jourian of Akhnoor sub-division in Jammu district on Sunday evening.

A senior police officer stated, “This evening, a minibus, bearing registration number JK02AQ -8477, on its way from Akhnoor to Mille Di Khui, overturned at Dhangri-Kaleeth, near Jourian, resulting into an on-spot death of two passengers. Sixteen other passengers also sustained injuries. All injured have been shifted to Sub-District Hospital (SDH) Akhnoor and Government Medical College (GMC) Hospital, Jammu.”
