Shimla: At least two persons were killed and 42 injured when a Himachal Roadways Transport Corporation (HRTC) bus fell into a gorge near Chintpurni on Sunday, police said.

The bus was going to Punjab's Hoshiarpur from Himachal Pradesh's Chintpurni, Una SP Diwakar Sharma said.

A man and a woman who died on the spot are yet to be identified, he said, adding eight passengers of the bus have suffered grievous injuries.

All the 42 injured were admitted to Regional Hospital Una. Those with minor injuries were discharged after the first aid, the police officer said.

The SP, who reached the spot soon after getting information about the incident, said the accident occurred around 3 pm and the rescue operation was completed by 6.30 pm.

The deceased and most of the injured were reported to be pilgrims who were returning home after paying obeisance at Chintpurni temple, the police said.

The Himachal Pradesh government has ordered a magisterial inquiry into the accident, state transport minister Govind Thakur said.

Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur has expressed grief over the death of two people in the bus accident.
