wrong guess in finding the bus
There has also been a mistake in finding the corporation’s bus from the soldiers engaged in relief and rescue work. When the search operation was started, it was assumed that the bus could be under the rubble on the road itself, but as the debris was cleared, there was no trace of the bus. Later it was found that the bus had fallen into the ditch along with the debris. The pieces of the bus were found in the ditch around 5 am on Thursday. People who reached the spot in search of their loved ones say that if the search operation was carried out even below the road, then everyone would have been found.
