Mathura :  

A car fell into canal at Makera area in Mathura on Sunday morning and ten persons including five women have died in the accident, police told.

The vehicle carrying pilgrims from Mehandipur Balaji temple lost control and fell into the Makera canal, SP (rural) Aditya Shukla said.

All the bodies have been fished out, he said, adding the victims belonged to Bareilly.

Prime facie, the vehicle may have been speeding on the narrow bridge along the canal or the driver may have dozed off leading to the accident, station-incharge Harish Vardhan Singh said.

Meanwhile, the residents blamed the authorities for failing to expand the narrow bridge along the canal.
