It is true that the bus carrying BSF personnel has overturned near Muzzaffarpur-Darbhanga border, Bihar on November 4, 2020. According to a report published on November 5 by Aaj Tak, a bus full of BSF personnel going in to election duty overturned between Thakaniya and Budhkara village of Muzaffarpur district. Ten soldiers including the bus driver were injured and admitted in a Community Health Centre.
Bhaskar also published the news on 5th NOV. “bsf jawans arriving on election duty overturned 10 injured”.
Conclusion: Various sources have confirmed that no BSF soldiers were killed in the bus accident. So the claim of 9 BSF soldiers killed in the accident is Fake and Misleading.
