JAMMU: Three members of a family died in a road accident in Chatroo area in J&K’s Kishtwar district on Sunday afternoon.
The three — Chingam residents Jashoda Devi, her daughter Kajal Devi, and son Nitin Kumar — were travelling in a car that skidded off the road and fell into a gorge, killing them.
This is the second fatal accident in Jammu’s Chenab region in a week. Earlier, five people were killed while a toddler girl was rescued when a van on its way from Doda to Batote rolled down in Ragi Nallah on February 15.
Union minister Dr Jitendra Singh condoled the deaths and directed Kishtwar deputy commissioner Ashok Sharma to provide all possible assistance to the bereaved family.
