Global News published this video item, entitled “6 Indian border police killed after bus falls in Kashmir gorge” – below is their description.

A bus carrying personnel from India’s high-altitude border police rolled off a mountainous road and fell into a gorge in Kashmir on Tuesday, killing at least six officers, police said.

The mangled remains of the bus were strewn next to a fast-flowing river, as locals and authorities helped evacuate the injured to waiting ambulances. A police officer told reporters 35 people survived the crash but some were badly injured.

Kashmir police said on Twitter the injured were being flown to an army hospital in the Himalayan region’s main city of Srinagar, some 90 km from the accident site in the Anantnag district.

The bus was carrying members of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force, a federal force specializing in high-altitude operations, mainly on the Indo-China border.
