Three students were drowned in Yamuna, where they had gone to immerse Durga idols on the occasion of Vijaya Dashami on Thursday.

The incident took place near Yamuna Pusta-III in the Wazirabad area in North Delhi. A team of the local police along with fire brigade officials and divers was pressed into service.

“After a half-an-hour-long search, the divers were able to fish out three bodies. A child is also reported missing,” the officer added. The victims were identified as Puran, 20, Dilshad Ali, 19, and Himmat, 21. The deceased were students of hardware engineering at a private institute in Rajouri Garden.

Police said the three were residents of BSF Colony in Sector 16, Dwarka.
