The police with help of locals rescued the passengers from the pond and shifted them to the general hospital. 

Sandeep, a passenger, said the bus carrying around 65 passengers was on its way to Panipat from Barsat village. The bus was travelling at a high speed, when its driver Mukesh lost control of the vehicle and it landed upside down in the pond along the Barsat road.
