In a tragic incident, as many as seven jawans of the Indian Army were killed in a road accident that took place in Ladakh’s Turtuk sector.

Several others have also been grievously injured in the accident, ANI reported.

Around 26 jawans were in the vehicle when it lost control and fell into a river.

"A party of 26 soldiers was moving from the Transit Camp in Partapur to a forward location in Sub Sector Hanif.
