An escort car for West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee fell into a gorge in Darjeeling on Friday, and all six security personnel traveling in the car have been rescued.

The car fell off the road while taking a steep turn in heavy fog in the area.

Mamata's convoy of cars was just behind that of President Pranab Mukherjee's, as they drove downhill to Bagdogra from Darjeeling, where the West Bengal government had hosted a reception for the President during his three-day visit.

The Chief Minister oversaw the rescue operations and the President's daughter, Sharmishtha, and son Abhijit helped them. The six security personnel rescued have been rushed to hospital.

The long line of cars had stopped for a while, but they are on their way to Bagdogra.
