Two people have died and several others are injured after an overloaded bus carrying migrant workers crashed while travelling along Gwalior Highway in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday, APA reports citing Sputnik. 

Speaking to Sputnik, a senior police official requesting anonymity said that the bus was heading to Chhatarpur and Tikamgarh from Delhi and overturned in the Jorasi district of Gwalior.




"The bus was overcrowded as it was carrying around 90 passengers in a 52-seater bus. The rescue operation is still underway," he said, adding that the injured had been rushed to hospital.

​He said that several of the injured are in a critical condition. The bus was reportedly overloaded with luggage, which is one possible reason it tipped over.
