In three days, 10 person killed in two road accidents in Himachal

Shimla: All five persons which included three women died in a road accident, last night in Kinnaur.

The accident happened when the car which they were travelling in lost control and fell into the River Satluj gorge at Bhavanagar.

Police reports say that four victims succumbed to their injuries on the spot and one was declared dead by doctors at the zonal hospital Rampur.

The accident victims have been identified to be residents of Rekong Peo, the district headquarters of Kinnaur.

Two days ago, five persons were killed and another 3 injured when the jeep in which they were travelling lost control and went off the road at Ghodana Kanchi, about 30 Kms from Theog in Shimla district.

The jeep carrying the 8 passengers was going from Marhyog in Chopal to attend a marriage in Kotkhai.

The 3 injured persons were first shifted to Theog and then to IGMC hospital in Shimla, police said.

  • the people unfortunately killed from reckong peo were my relatives.it says the car lost control but i have heard people say the police found alcohol at the back of the car.i believe they were not under the effect of any alcohol as they had covered most of the journey and add to that they fell down from the other side from where other vehicles would have been coming.they all were very mature as a man was in army and other was a govt lawyer so dont think that they would be drunk in the presence of a wife and an aunt.did the doctors conduct any tests to identify if they were possibly drunk?? people in my village are blaming the person for drunk driving without knowing the actual facts. please it would be well appreciated if u could provide me any further detail about this accident.
