Six personnel of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police died and 33 others were injured after a bus they were travelling in fell into a deep gorge in Chandanwari near the Pahalgam area of Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday.

An ITBP spokesperson in Delhi told the media that the bus fell down into a roadside river bed after its brakes failed.

The bus was carrying 37 Indo-Tibetan Border Police personnel and two Jammu and Kashmir Police personnel from Chandanwari to Pahalgam.

The personnel were deputed in the area for the Amarnath Yatra, which ended on August 11.
