At least 29 people were killed on Monday when a passenger bus fell into a gorge on the Agra-Lucknow Expressway.

 
The bus, after hitting the divider, fell into the 40-feet-deep gap between two flyovers on the Yamuna Expressway near Milestone 161 (Jharna nallah) at around 4.15 a.m.
 
The double-decker bus with about 50 passengers on board was heading to Delhi from Lucknow.
 
The U.P. Roadways has announced an ex-gratia of ₹5 lakh to each of the kin of the deceased.
