PATNA, India -- Fifteen Bhutanese Buddhist pilgrims were injured when their bus met with an accident while they were on their way back from Bodh Gaya, where Lord Buddha attained enlightenment.
The driver and his assistant of the bus were drunk and fled after the accident on Wednesday evening in Kishanganj district, 300 km from here, said police.
All the injured have been admitted in a hospital and are in stable condition. The administration later arranged for a truck for the 47 Bhutanese to return home.
