PETALING JAYA: Weerapan Tour and Travel Limited, the owner of the bus involved in the bus tragedy in which 13 Malaysians were killed and nine others were injured, was also implicated in a similar dreadful accident two years ago.

A double-decker bus carrying Thai visitors to a temple in the Chiang Mai district plunged into a ravine at Lampang, killing 23 of its 38 passengers, on Oct 23, 2013.

The passengers were returning home after a “merit making” trip to the Wat Ban Wang Mai Charoen Buddhist Temple when the accident occurred.

Reports quoted police as saying that the bus rammed through a guardrail and plunged into a 30m deep ravine.
