MANSEHRA: Six people, including a child, were killed when a Rawalpindi-bound car skidded off the road and plunged into a deep ravine in Changal area of Lower Kohistan on Saturday.

“We have retrieved all the six bodies from the ditch and shifted them to civil hospital, Pattan,” Mohammad Salman Khan, the Lower Kohistan district police officer, told reporters.

The car, which was coming from Gilgit on the Karakoram Highway, met the accident when the driver lost control over the steering while negotiating a sharp curve.

DPO Salman Khan said that all those killed in the accident were from Lower Dir district.

Three of the victims were identified as Mohammad Imran, Inayatullah and Asghar Deen. The identity of the remaining three could not be ascertained.
