25 wedding party guests die after bus plunges into river






No fewer than 25 wedding party guests died Wednesday morning when their bus fell into a river.
The tragedy happened on Kota-Dausa highway in Bundi district, Rajasthan, India, the police said.

Three persons were injured.

The wedding party with 28 persons on board was headed to Sawai Madhopur from Kota early morning when the driver apparently lost control of the bus while traversing a bridge near Papdi village under Lekhari police station limits, Lakheri Sub-Inspector Rajendra Kumar told news agency Press Trust of India.

The bus, subsequently, fell into Mej river from the bridge that had no wall or railing, Mr Kumar said. Mej river is a tributary of the Chambal river in Rajasthan, NDTV reported.

Thirteen people died on the spot while 10 others succumbed to their injuries on way to hospital, he added.

The dead include 11 men, 10 women and three children.

The injured were taken to Lekhari government hospital from where the critically injured are being referred to a government hospital in Kota, the police officer further said.

Most of the injured people were rescued with the help of locals in the village, he added.
