Three persons, including a couple, were killed when a private car plunged into a canal on the outskirts of Jammu early on Saturday, police said, adding that a rescue operation is under way to find a missing baby.

Four other persons, who were also travelling in the vehicle, were rescued and admitted to hospital, a police official said.

He said the accident took place at Marallian in Miran Sahib in the early hours when the car carrying eight people on its way to Bahadurpur village in Arnia skidded off the road and fell into the canal.

Ganesh Kumar, who was driving the vehicle, lost control while negotiating a curve, the official said, adding that police along with locals immediately launched a rescue operation.

They managed to save the lives of Kumar, his wife Kanchana, Meenu Kumari and her son Sushant who were shifted to hospital.

The rescuers recovered the bodies Kewal Krishan (60), his wife Surjeet Kumari (52) and two-year-old Manshi, while the search is still on for two-month-old Paranshi, the official said. PTI
