Passengers traveling from Jammu to Srinagar were involved in a tragic incident when their cab fell into a deep ditch along the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway near Battery Chashma in the Ramban area.

Upon receiving information about the incident, the Police, SDRF, and Civil QRT teams promptly arrived at the scene to initiate the rescue operation.
