At least seven Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers were injured after a bus carrying 45 supporters of the party overturned in Himachal Pradesh’s Kullu district.
According to the police, all the injured have been shifted to the hospital.
The incident happened at Nagni village in Banjar area of Kullu. Preliminary investigation suggests that the brakes of the bus failed, which led to the accident.
The workers were heading to Kullu to attend a scheduled rally of Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
The police reached the site of the accident and began a probe.
Bus accidents frequently happen in Himachal Pradesh.
Last month, 10 persons were killed and 18 others suffered injuries after a private bus skidded off the road and fell into a gorge in Dalhousie area of Chamba district at around 8 pm.
The ill-fated bus was on its way to Dalhousie in Chamba district from Pathankot in Punjab when the driver allegedly lost control over the vehicle while negotiating a sharp turn.
The injured were rushed to Regional Hospital in Chamba for further medical treatment.
The administration had a tough time in extracting the victims from the bus, though the locals had already started rescuing the injured, much before the authorities reached the spot.
