Heavy rains, rising water levels, no way out — this is what 55 students from two colleges stranded near a Raigad waterfall had to contend with on Sunday.

Additional superintendent of police, Sanjay Patil, said the students went to Devkund waterfalls near Bhira village in Raigad, but got trapped between two streams of the Kundalika river.
