Last month, at least 11 people died after a car rolled down a hill near Rohtang at Rani Nallah, in Kullu district. In an earlier incident, at least 33 university staffers were killed when a bus on a picnic trip fell into a deep gorge near Poladpur, around 175 km from Mumbai. There were 34 people traveling on the bus, and only one person could manage to survive.
The sole survivor, Prakash Sawant, narrated how he got out of the bus when he realised the bus had skidded on the muddy road. “The bus veered to the left and fell into the gorge before we could understand what was happening. Trees arrested the fall someway down. I had managed to jump out in time. I climbed my way up somehow,” he had said.
