Darjeeling: Twenty-two police personnel, who were returning home to North Dinajpur from Kalimpong where they were deployed for chief minister Mamata Banerjee's visit, were injured when their van overturned on Friday.
Police sources said the van overturned in a bend at 3rd Mile, about 9km from Kalimpong town around 2pm. "The van hit the guard rails on the road and overturned. Had it jumped the guard walls, it would have tumbled down the hill," said a police source.
Thirty-six police personnel were travelling in the van.
"Investigations are on to ascertain the cause of the accident," said a police source.
