SRINAGAR: A crowded bus veered off a rocky village road and fell into a deep gorge on Monday, killing at least 23 people in the India-held portion of the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir, police said.

The driver apparently lost control of the bus while negotiating a curve, police inspector general Danish Rana said.

At least 25 other people were injured in the accident. Rana said police had reached the area and were evacuating the injured.

The 48-seat public bus was traveling to the town of Uthampur when the accident happened near the village of Marotthi, more than 200 kilometers south of India-held Kashmir's main city of Srinagar.

Kashmir is divided between India and Pakistan, but claimed by both in its entirety.
