Bus plunges into river killing 33 people travelling to Hindu temple

The accident occurred when the underage driver lost control of the bus, said a local police official quoted in the reports.

The speeding bus was trying to overtake another vehicle when it rammed through the bridge railing at around 7am, according to the police.

At least 20 people were killed and 23 others injured, when a bus fell into the river Banas early Saturday morning.

All the bodies have been recovered from the bus after cutting the windows and sent them to hospital for further medical procedure. Police said most of the passengers were pilgrims from Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, and were heading to a temple in Malarna Chour near Lalsot. "The state government is closely monitoring the situation, including rescue operations, and is providing all possible assistance to those affected", tweeted Modi.

Around 35 people are injured in the accident while the bodies of 30 passengers have been fished out, authorities said. "We needed a crane to pull the bus out of the river", said Anoop Singh, station house officer at Soorwal police station in Sawai Madhopur.
