At least 40 people are reported missing after a passenger bus fell into a canal in central India. Operational services closed the dam to prevent the vehicle from being swept away by the current, the Times of India reported.
The accident occurred at about 08:30 am local time on February 16 in the Sidhi area of Madhya Pradesh. The bus, in the cabin of which, according to preliminary data, there were 54 passengers, left the highway and completely went under water.
They managed to save about 10 people who got out on their own, the rest are now looking for rescuers. The flow of water from the Bansagar dam was shut off so that the current would not be carried away by the bus, which was to be lifted with a crane. Only then, as noted by local authorities, the exact number of missing and dead will become known.
