Dhar (MP): Five school-children were killed and 45 others injured when a school-bus fell into a gorge near the tourist town of Mandu, 33 km from here, this morning. "The mishap took place at 5.30 am. The bus was carrying students of Satyasiddhi Public School, Khachrod and was heading to Mandu," sub-divisional magistrate Ravindra Choudhary said.

The bus had left Khachrod, in Ujjain district, last night and fell into the gorge when the driver lost control on the steering wheel near Aalam Ka Darwaja, he said. The injured have been rushed to the district hospital here, while eight of the children, who were in serious condition, were sent to Indore, Choudhary said.
