Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur announced an immediate relief of Rs 5 lakh to the next of kin of each deceased. The bodies were rescued with the help of local people.

The crash was reported at 4:52 p.m. Monday.

The driver was speeding and lost control at the edge of the gorge, police officer Sunil Kumar said, adding that the rescue operation would continue into the night.
