The Supreme Court on Thursday, 6 December, termed as "unacceptable" the death of nearly 15,000 people in road accidents caused by potholes in the last five years and said the number was probably more than those killed on the border or by terrorists.

This indicates that authorities concerned are not maintaining the roads properly, a bench headed by Justice Madan B Lokur said.

"It is unacceptable that such a large number of death takes place on roads due to potholes," said the bench, which also comprised Justices Deepak Gupta and Hemant Gupta.
