Bodies of two more youths, swept away in a flash flood on Wednesday in Ghaggar river were recovered today here in Panchkula.


Eight youths, celebrating a party, had entered the river and were swept away in the flash flood, triggered by heavy rains in neighbouring state Himachal Pradesh.

"Two more bodies were fished out today. One body was retrieved yesterday. Efforts are on to trace the remaining boys who were swept away in the river," Panchkula deputy commissioner SS Phulia said.

Three persons are still missing in yesterday's incident, he added.
