As the private vehicle reached Khanni top, 24 km away from Bhaderwah, it skidded off the road while negotiating a steep turn and fell into a gorge, Assistant Superintendent of Police Rajinder Singh said. Seven other passengers including three women and two young boys, believed to be relatives of the deceased, were injured, they added.
The mother-son duo were declared brought dead while four of the injured were in critical condition, police said.
The district administration has requisitioned for a chopper to airlift them to a hospital in Jammu for specialised treatment, they added.
