Confirming the incident, local deputy superintendent of police, A.M. Sayyed was reported as having said the death toll had risen after five more injured persons died in the hospital and it was expected that the number might rise further, as more injured were still in critical conditions.

The incident has caught the attention of the Indian authorities who have voted 400,000 rupees ($6,148) compensation package for each bereaved family.

According to reports, about 150,000 lives are lost in India each year through road accidents due to the bad nature of the country’s roads among others.
