The body of a 19-year-old youth who went missing on Saturday was recovered from Chandratal Lake in Himachal’s Lahaul and Spiti on Monday evening, police said

The deceased has been identified as Amar Chand from Manali. He reportedly fell into the lake on August 22, but could not be rescued by a police and district administration team because of unavailability of divers.

On Monday a team of Bhakra Beas Management Board (BBMB) divers lead by senior diver Balbir Singh arrived at the spot for search operations and recovered the body by the evening.

After an autopsy conducted at the Community Health Centre (CHC) Kaza the body was handed over to relatives, sub-divisional magistrate (SDM) Kaza Jeevan Singh Negi confirmed.
