According to the police, the tourists’ jeep fell into a deep ravine when the driver tried to negotiate a sharp turn on the dilapidated road on the mountainous terrain of the valley.

The deceased were members of the same family, and the injured man was shifted to a nearby hospital where his condition was said to be critical.

Road accidents frequently happen in Pakistan due to poorly maintained roads, violation of road safety rules, and reckless driving.
