As soon as the news of the accident reached Kishtwar town, the locals and the Police immediately rushed to the spot along with ambulances and started rescue and relief operation. After four hour long hectic operation led by SSP Kishtwar Rajinder Gupta all the 13 occupants of the vehicle were recovered from the accident site of which 12 were declared as dead on spot while a 5 year old girl died at Jammu Hospital.
