Seven people including a family of four from Delhi were killed in a freak accident that hit Gulmarg’s famous Gondola cable lift system on Sunday.
Officials said a tree fell on the ropeway, causing it to recoil so violently that passengers in two cars were left with fatal injuries.

Among the dead were Jayant Andraskar, his wife Manshea and their daughters Anagha and Janhvi — residents of Delhi’s Shalimar Bagh, and their guide Mukhtar Ahmad Ganai.
Jahangir Ahmed Khanday, also a local guide, and Farooq Ahmad Chopan were the other casualties.
Locals said a storm hit the region around 3pm. “A tree was uprooted, and it hit a second tree that fell on the ropeway. Seven people were killed,” said Imtiyaz Hussain, the senior superintendent of police in Baramullah.
Authorities at Tanmarg hospital, where the bodies were taken, said the victims showed signs of multiple internal injuries.
