Police said while Raj Babu, 7, Nazia Bano, 11, Mohammad Munazir, 10, and Amir, 9 died, one girl, 10, who also had gone deep into the river, was critical, the police said.

Police said the kids from Rattipurwa had travelled about a kilometre inside the river Ganga to take bath.

Local divers who were nearby, immediately got into the rescue act to save the children and even managed to bring out all the five children from water.

All the children were unconscious by the time they could be brought out and were rushed to a local nursing home. They were subsequently referred to Kanshiram Memorial Trauma Centre in Kanpur where four of them were declared dead upon arrival.

Sub-Inspector Vimal Goyal who is incharge of Jajmau post said one girl was undergoing treatment at the trauma centre where doctors have described her condition as ‘critical.’

Relatives of the deceased have requested the police to not conduct an autopsy and Goyal said the cops have agreed to the request.
