Israeli tourist killed in car crash in India E-mail

Four Israelis were injured and one died in a traffic accident in a remote mountainside area of India in June. Eli Sneh, Israel’s Consul General in Delhi, met the four Israelis to help them fly back home and also return the body of 36-year-old Adva Ben Dahan to Israel for burial.

The vehicle in which the tourists were travelling swerved off a mountain road and plunged into a valley between Manali and Leh in the Spiti Valley in the Himalayan mountains in northern India. Roads in the area are steep, with sections of gravel and loose soil, and are criss-crossed by streams.

Sneh said the accident happened after the vehicle hit a bus and veered off the road, plunging more than 150 metres down a slope. Sneh arrived in the city of Kullu, some 500 kilometres (310 miles) north of India’s capital, Delhi, and visited the Israelis hospitalised there, one of whom was in serious condition.
