Malpani said three students aged 5 to 14 and the driver died on the spot. Three students died later in a hospital.

The cause of the accident is being investigated.

Around 150,000 people die every year on India’s roads, often because of reckless driving, badly maintained roads and vehicles overcrowded with passengers.

In September, 55 people were killed when a bus carrying pilgrims from a Hindu temple in the hills of south India plunged off a road.
