Three people were killed and 32 others injured when a minibus overturned at the Ramkot belt of Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district today, the police said.

The driver of the "overloaded" minibus, which was on its way from Nagrota Gujjroo in Kathua to Khoon in Udhampur district, lost control of the vehicle, which skidded off the road and overturned at the Challari-Ramkot belt, the police said.

Those killed and injured were travelling in the minibus.

The deceased were identified as Ajay Singh (19), Hoshiar Singh (21) and Kuldeep Raj (31) — all from Majalta in Udhampur — the police said, adding that the accident occurred due to the "rash and negligent" driving of the driver.

Of the 32 injured, 18 were referred to hospitals — 14 to the Government Medical College Hospital in Jammu and four to the Udhampur district hospital.
