‘LAKE PRINCESS’ — the only cruise boat in the City — got stuck up in the middle of the Upper Lake today, raising the heart beats of those aboard it. .
Like any other day, a large number of visitors began their ride on Lake Princess this evening from Boat Club without having any idea what was in the store for them. When it reached near ‘Takia Tapu’ – the island with a Mazaar — the pulley-radar of the cruise boat reportedly got cut and thereby completely mmobilising the boat.
As the passengers on board came to know about the problem, they got panicky. However, small boats helped the passengers to get out of the cruise. As the technical fault could not be repaired till late evening, the cruise remained static.
“The cruise was bought by paying around Rs 40 lakh,” a source added. Despite repeated efforts, officials concerned could not be contacted.
