Two people were killed and nine injured on Saturday in a road accident in Jammu and Kashmir's Bandipora district.
Fifty five-year-old Naani Begum and 10-year-old Tabassum were killed and nine others injured after their vehicle went out of the driver's control on the Gurez-Bandipora road and plunged into a gorge, police said.
The injured were taken to the Bandipora district hospital.
Due to heavy snowfall, the Bandipora-Gurez road remains closed for nearly four months each year during winter. The road was restored for traffic a fortnight back.
