Two Amarnath pilgrims were killed and 50 injured, six of them seriously, when a bus carrying them rolled down into a gorge at Banihal in Doda district on Tuesday.
The bus, which was part of a convoy carrying pilgrims from Jammu to Pahalgam base camp, skidded off the road and fell into a 100-metre deep gorge on the Jammu-Srinagar Highway at Chamalwas, official sources said.
Most of the pilgrims in the bus belonged to Madhya Pradesh, they said.
While two pilgrims died on the spot, the 50 injured have been admitted to Government Medical College Hospital in Jammu.
