In an unfortunate incident, a night bus travelling from Itanagar to Jagun fell into a swamp, near the highway, after the driver lost control of the vehicle.
The incident has taken place in Dergaon’s Shitalpathar.
Several injured passengers travelling by the Network bus have been rescued by the local residents. People fear some of the passengers are still trapped inside the bus.
The bus is now being pulled out of the swamp with the help of three cranes. This has led to disruption of traffic on the highway causing long lines of vehicles.
It has been alleged that it is due to the dilapidated conditions of the roads that has led to such an accident jeopardizing lives of many.
