Union Minister of State Jitendra Singh on Thursday said that eight people have lost their lives in a road accident near Thatri town of Doda district in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

The Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir also expressed his condolences to the families of the deceased.

"Deeply anguished to hear about the tragic road accident in Doda. My thoughts and prayers for the families who have lost their loved ones. I have directed the District administration to provide immediate relief to families of deceased and best medical assistance to the injured," Sinha tweeted. (ANI)
