Kashmir : 4 killed, 1 injured on Thatri Doda road accident

Four persons died while one received serious injury after a Tata Sumo plunged into a deep gorge on Thatri Jangalwar Cheera road in Doda district here today .The vehicle (JK06 -63392 ) was on way to Thatri from Cheera village when it skidded off the road, resulting in spot death of four persons and injury to one other succumbed in Community Health Center Thatri , taking the death toll to four.The deceased have been identified as Altaf Hussain s/o Mohd Iqbal Naik r/o Jainerri , Yasir Ahmed s/o Abdul Rashid Butt r/o Janerri Thatri ,Touqeer Hussain s/o Rehmatuallh r/o Zaheri village Thatri and Rashid Hussain s/o Munwar Din Lone r/o Rangola Nowtass Thatri.It is worthwile to mention here that because of the insensitivity of administration, roads in most of the hilly areas of the state have become death traps. Every year hundreds of lives are lost in road accidents on Chenab valley roads and deadly serpentine narrow roads of hilly districts. It has almost become a ritual with the political leaders in power or in opposition to issue condolences on these tragedies and express sympathies with bereaved family. Nevertheless, fact of the matter is that so far nothing substantial has been done except ordering an inquiry into the accident and promising introduction of road safety schemes. Every time people are killed in road accidents, the administration announces high-sounding traffic regulations only to be forgotten until next accident. True, corruption in the traffic department is abetting these accidents but prime cause is the bad and narrow roads.
