At least seven people, including drivers and passengers, were badly injured when two private buses collided on the Howrah bridge on Thursday morning, police said.

“All the injured people are undergoing treatment at a nearby hospital. We are trying to find out whether the accident is due to a technical glitch or something else,” according to a police official.
