Search on to locate body of varsity student

A search operation is on to locate the body of a female student of M.S. University who is feared drowned in the Mahisagar river of Savli taluka’s Lachhanpura village, about 30 km from here, a Vadodara Municipal Corporation (VMC) fire brigade officer said here on Sunday.

Two girls, namely Simran B. Dahiyan and Ayushi K. Jaiswal, were feared drowned in the river during a picnic.

Talking to PTI, the officer said, “We have recovered the dead body of Ayushi K Jaiswal, a 20-year-old girl from the river a short while ago.” The heavy force of water released from a nearby dam due to heavy rains in catchment areas had swept them away, he said.

A group of seven university students had gone to the riverside for a picnic, he said.
