    Nearly 20 people were feared dead in a road accident involving a double-decker bus and a truck as the two collided near Chhibramau in Kannauj district of Uttar Pradesh on Friday night.

    The Police said a total of 25 people boarded the bus from Gursahaigunj (Farukhabad) and some people also took it from Chhibramau but their number is not clear. Twenty-one people were brought to a government hospital in Chhibramau. All are out of danger.

    Fire tenders were called in from several places. Fire has been controlled and assessment of casualties would begin shortly.

    UP CM announced Rs 2 lakh each to the kin of those who died in the accident and Rs 50,000 each to the injured.

    He has expressed grief over those who list life in the incident, said a government spokesman.

    The CM has also asked the cabinet minister Ram Naresh Agnihotri to go to the spot.
