Another accident victim dies in Poonch; toll 4

One of eight persons, critically injured in an accident in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district, has succumbed to injuries, raising the death toll in the incident to four, officials said today.

Three people, including a woman, were killed and eight others injured when a cab skidded off a road and plunged into a 250 feet deep gorge near Gursai Parnav late last evening.

Four of the critically injured people were referred to the Government Medical College hospital, Jammu, for specialised treatment. One of them succumbed on the way to the hospital, they said.

He identified the deceased as Koshal Kanta, Nissar Shah, Khursheed Ahmad and Liaqat Ali.

The vehicle was headed for Surankote from Mandhar when its driver lost control while negotiating a blind curve, leading to the accident.(PTI)
