At least 16 people were killed after a passenger bus tumbled off into a deep ravine on Gilgit Road near Tungus due to landsliding, on Sunday.

According to details, the bus was carrying 18 passengers when it was traveling from Rawalpindi to Skardu and fell into a ravine due to the landslide.

Rescue operations are underway as the injured are being evacuated and shifted to the nearby hospital for medical treatment.
