Sharing the image social media users are claiming that, 25 pilgrims from Madhya Pradesh died in a bus accident.

Further, sharing the picture, a social media user Sanjay Satyaedra Pathak wrote,” the death of 25 pilgrims from our neighboring district of Panna in Madhya Pradesh on pilgrimage to Chardham in Uttarakhand after the bus going to Yamunotri Dham fell into the gorge. May God give peace to the departed souls. Om Shanti Santi!”

Similarly, another user Abhilash Pandey wrote, “The death of the pilgrims on the pilgrimage to Chardham in Uttarakhand after the bus going to Yamunotri Dham fell into the gorge. May God give peace to the departed souls.”
