Electrical wire falls on bus in India, at least 17 dead


An electrical wire fell on a bus carrying people to a wedding in western India on Friday, killing at least 17, a local official said.

Government official Rekha Gupta said the bus was carrying more than 50 people to the wedding in Rajasthan state’s Tonk district.

The bride and bridegroom were not on board, he said. At least 23 others were injured and taken to a hospital.

Few other details were immediately available. India’s power transmission infrastructure is often poorly maintained and electrical cables sometimes fall, electrocuting nearby people.

Last month, a train had rammed into a tractor pulling a wagon loaded with people at an unmanned railroad crossing in northern India, killing 10 people and injuring more than 30 others, a police official had said.

The tractor was crossing the railroad track near the town of Bijnor in Uttar Pradesh state when it was hit by the passenger train.
