Two people were killed in a sudden paragliding accident in Himachal Pradesh’s Dobhi area of Kullu district.

A paragliding pilot and a tourist died after cooling with a hill soon after their take-of. Soon after the rescue operation, they were rushed to the nearby hospital. A police probe on Kullu Sp Gurdev Chand Sharma has said that a post-mortem has begun and the body will be sent to the family soon.

This is the second paragliding accident that took place in Himachal Pradesh this year. The last accident where two persons were killed at Bir Billing in Kangra district of Himachal in March.
