A bus carrying 30 Jawans onboard washed away in a swirling rivulet in the dense forest belt of Chattisgarh on the Bijapur-Odisha border in the Malkangiri district today.
A video clip of the incident went viral on social media with some unidentified source posting it. However, enquiries revealed that the accident occurred while the bus was crossing over an overflowing bridge across a small rivulet. But due to the heavy flow of water due to incessant rains pushed the bus away from the road.
Sources said there is no loss of life reported as all of them were rescued by their colleagues and the locals. They are said to be returning to their base camp when the incident occurred.
