The incident occurred in the Shalkan Abad area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Kolai Palas Kohistan.

The jeep carrying 21 people was heading to Gadar, a hilly area, from Seer Ghaziabad. Due to the bad condition of the road, the vehicle fell into Indus River, according to station house officer (SHO) Hafeezur Rehman.

The SHO said that some people jumped out of the jeep when it was falling and most of them sustained minor injuries. Ten people, however, including two women and three children, did not survive the fall.

Seven people have so far been rescued from the river and taken to a hospital in Seer Ghaziabad.

Efforts were underway to retrieve the remaining bodies from the river, said SHO Rahman.
