ISLAMABAD: Three tourists were tragically killed when their car plunged into a deep ravine in Babusar top area of Kaghan Valley. Police sources said that the deceased had gone to Gilgit-Baltistan for a tour. On their way back the driver  lost control and the car plunged into a deep ravine. Consequently all three occupants of the car were killed instantaneously.  Police said that due to darkness of the night and rain, rescue workers were facing difficulties. However, after hectic efforts the bodies were eventually retrieved from the ravine and were shifted to the Chilas hospital. Police further said that the bodies would soon be sent to their ancestral abodes once legal formalities were completed.
