At least 20 people died and 21 others were hurt after a passenger bus overturned on the Karakoram Highway in Gilgit-Baltistan’s Diamer district in Pakistan on Friday, media reports said.

According to Diamer district rescue officer Shoukat Riaz, the bus, which belonged to a private company, was travelling from Rawalpindi to Gilgit when the driver lost control near Gunar Farm, reported Dawn News.

The bus soon overturned and landed on the bank of the Indus River.
