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.
The vehicle according to the police was ferrying a group of Machail Mata devotes hailing from Marmat area of Doda District and was returning from Padder to Kishtwar after Darshan at the Shrine.
