September 14, 2022

Srinagar, Sept 13: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Wednesday announced Rs 5 lakh as compensation to the next of kin of those killed in a minibus accident in Poonch.

At least nine people, three of the women and two young boys, were killed in the accident near Barari Ballah Sawjian while at least 27 others were injured. The death toll may rise given the fact that at least 11 injured are stated to be critical.

“Saddened by loss of lives due to a road accident in Sawjian, Poonch. Condolences to bereaved families,” Sinha, who reviewed development scenario in Poonch only yesterday, said in a tweet. “May the injured recover soon,” he said, adding, “Rs. 5 lakh would be given to the next of kin of deceased. Directed Police and Civil authorities to provide best possible treatment to the injured.” (GNS)
