6 missing after car falls into Himachal river

Shimla, July 4 (IANS) Six family members were reported missing when a car skidded off the road and fell into the swollen Beas river on the Mandi-Manali national highway, police said on Monday.

“Search operation is on to locate the six missing people but their chances of survival are less as the river is in spate. One body has been recovered,” a police official told IANS.
