It is understood the driver lost control of the car as it turned around a sharp bend on the Muzaffarabad-Neelam Valley road before crashing into a deep gorge.

The bride, Safeena Lateef, 19, was killed in the crash, while the groom, Owais, 22, was injured.

At least three other people died in the tragedy – the driver and two women.

Five children aged between six months and five years were also injured in the crash and taken to hospital.
