At least 16 people, including 9 men, 6 women and one child died while eight were injured when a mini-bus and a Bolero collided head-on on Jailsalmer-Jodhpur road on Friday afternoon soon after bus’s tyre got burst.

The police team rushed to the spot and took the injured to a nearby in Balesar hospital from where they were shifted to a Jodhpur hospital.

The police said a resident of Balesar, Shravan Singh, was returning his home after attending last rites of his relative in a jeep which had two males and two females. All four died in the accident.
