Nine people died and two others were injured Friday in a road accident in Jammu and Kashmir's Baramulla district, police said.

The accident occurred when a Tata Sumo taxi carrying passengers from Bonyar to Banet village near the border town of Uri went out of the driver's control and rolled down 200 feet into a deep gorge, a senior police officer said here.

"Nine people including the driver of the vehicle died in the accident while two passengers sustained injuries. Rescue teams were sent to the spot immediately after the report about the accident was received," the officer said.
