"In all 15 separate road accidents killed 13 people and injured at least 25 others in different parts of Tripura during the five-day Durga Puja festival (Oct 10-14). The victims were aged 20-41 years," a police spokesman told reporters.
He said: "All the road mishaps were caused due to speedy and negligent driving of two-wheelers and small cars. In some cases the drivers were drunk."
Of the 25 injured, most of them are in a critical condition and are being treated at different government hospitals and medical colleges. Some of them have been shifted to Kolkata.
In another accident Tuesday, a 35-year-old man was killed and 30 people injured when a Agartala bound passenger bus overturned at Udaipur in south Tripura, 55 km south from here.
