A tragic road accident occurred in the Sonamarg area of Central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district, resulting in the death of a man from Punjab and injuries to several other passengers. The incident took place on Monday when a vehicle skidded off the road near Sarbal.

The vehicle, bearing registration number PB01A 4898, was traveling from Sonamarg towards Kargil. It was carrying six passengers, including one woman, two children, three men, and the driver. The circumstances leading to the accident are currently under investigation by the local authorities.

In the accident, Tarseem Lal, son of Nathu Ram and a resident of Janipor Gurdaspor, Punjab, lost his life on the spot. The news of his untimely demise has brought immense grief to his family and community in Punjab.

The injured passengers were promptly transported to the Primary Health Centre (PHC) in Sonamarg for medical treatment. The extent of their injuries is yet to be fully assessed, but medical staff are providing the necessary care.

Local police have taken cognizance of the incident and have started an investigation to determine the exact cause of the accident. Preliminary reports suggest that the vehicle may have skidded off due to slippery road conditions, but further details are awaited.

This incident highlights the recurring issue of road safety in the hilly regions of Kashmir, where accidents are often caused by treacherous road conditions and a lack of adequate safety measures. Authorities are urged to take stronger actions to prevent such tragic occurrences.

The loss of Tarseem Lal is a significant blow to his family, who are now dealing with the sudden and unexpected tragedy. Community members in Janipor Gurdaspor have expressed their condolences and are rallying around the grieving family.
