Rescue efforts are on to save people trapped in other cars of the gondola cable auto project.
Hussain said gusty winds in the area uprooted a huge pine tree that hit the cable of the coach, bringing it down to the ground.
The Andraskars, residents of Shalimar Bagh in north west Delhi, had gone to Kashmir on June 22.

A local, Mukhtar Ahmad, a resident of Chonti Patri Babareshi was also killed, the official said. More than 150 tourists, including children, were stranded in the Gondola after the incident, prompting the officials to call in the Army. Their guide Mukthar Ahmad Ganai also died.
Two others, Tariq Ahmad and Ajaz Ahmad, both residents of Pachhar, were injured and were taken to a hospital in Srinagar.
Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah mourned the loss of lives in the incident as he tweeted: "Heart breaking images coming out of #Gulmarg". Gulmarg is a winter ski destination but also popular during the summer season.
Mehbooba announced ex gratia relief of Rs. five lakh in favor of next of kin of the killed.
Immediately after the cable vehicle crashed, authorities launched an operation to rescue the people stuck in the gondolas.
The accident drew condemnation from former chief minister Omar Abdullah, who, expressing his condolences in a series of tweets, questioned why the cable vehicle service wasn't shut down during high winds as a precautionary measure. He tweeted "What bad news!" The second phase of the cable vehicle was made operational in 2005. "That's a laid down SOP [standard operating procedure]", he posted on Twitter.
