A group of 150 personnel from the Pavdi State Reserve Police (SRP) unit in Dahod district had just concluded three days of firing training in the hilly terrain located at the base of Pavagadh near Halol. As they were returning from this training mission, an unfortunate incident occurred. While descending the rugged and unpaved road leading from Firing Butte, a bus owned by the SRP group experienced a brake failure. The bus, carrying over 40 personnel, lost control and careened down a ravine, ultimately overturning.

This harrowing accident left more than 30 soldiers with injuries. Immediate action was taken to ensure their well-being. The injured personnel were transported to the Halol Mass Health Center via another bus and the emergency medical service ‘108.’ In a commendable display of swift response, eight additional soldiers with injuries were further transferred to Vadodara after receiving initial first aid. Medical professionals are currently providing the necessary care and treatment to all the affected soldiers.
