Bus falls into river in Rajasthan

The bus, which was carrying passengers in the Indian state of Rajasthan, was speeding to overtake another vehicle when it crashed through a bridge railing, falling into the river below, survivors said.

"My thoughts are with the families of the deceased", Mr. Modi said on his Twitter account.

The bus, which had reportedly departed from Sawai Madhopur station, crashed around 7am (2330 on Friday GMT).

Police said the bus driver apparently lost control because of high speed and poor visibility in the early morning fog.

Around 35 people are injured in the accident while the bodies of 30 passengers have been fished out, authorities said. The doors of the bus were damaged and could not open. "One after the other, corpses were pulled out of the bus".

Twenty-seven bodies have been recovered and five injured rushed to hospitals, Singh said, adding he also said 10 bodies were handed over to their family members after post-mortem.
