Two minor school students died at a remote area of an Indian state of Assam when a mini bus in which they went to school plunged it a deep gorge while crossing on a narrow wooden bridge on Thursday.
According to the family members, the driver was in inebriated condition as he was carrying the vehicle to the morning shift school where the incident took place halfway.
Two bodies were fished out by the local residents while the injured others have been shifted to a local health centre for treatment.
State disaster response force launched a vigorous search operation on the local rivulet to be completed an hour.
Mob violence erupted on the spot who recovered the ill fated vehicle to be set on fire. Two local policemen were mercilessly thrashed by the angry mob as they tried to quell the agitated people.
Local residents told Assam Times news crew on the spot that bad roads and a technically infeasible vehicle combination were no less responsible for the mishap that bring pall of gloom into the entire West Assam district of Barpeta.
