Dharamshala:11 people have died here as a private tourist bus carrying pilgrims from Delhi to Vaishno Devi shrine rolled down a deep gorge into Charran Khad on late-night Wednesday. Till news last came in, 11 dead bodies had been extracted from the mangled remains of the bus. The accident occurred at the dreaded ‘Kenchi Mod’ as the driver of the bus carrying 37 people failed to negotiate the sharp turn. It may be remembered that 13 people from Gujarat had lost their lives at the same place nearly a year back.

Update
According to The Hindu, in a bizarre twist of fate, two years ago, on the same date, 19 Gujarati tourists were killed and 20 injured when their bus plunged into a gorge at the very same place.
