8 BSF personnel injured in highway accident
Banihal, May 01: Eight Border Security Force (BSF) personnel were injured Wednesday evening when their vehicle turned upside down after colliding with a parked dumper on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway in Ramban district, police said.
The accident took place at Gangroo-Ramsoo in Ramban when the paramilitary personnel were on their way to Jammu from the Kashmir Valley, they said.
The BSF personnel were on board a private bus, which hit a standing dumper on the highway, an official said.
A rescue operation was launched immediately and the injured were shifted to the Ramsoo hospital, where their condition was stated to be “stable”, he said.
There was no civilian traffic on the highway at the time of the accident because of restrictions imposed twice a week — Wednesday and Sunday — from 4 am to 5 pm to facilitate smooth movement of security convoys.
