Fire officer Chhatrapal Singh Jala said that on Sunday evening two boys fell into a canal in Khamisana village. He told that both of them were around 13 years old.
“Both were trying to drink water from the canal and fell in it,” said Jala. The water level in the canal was high and due to this we could not start the search operation on Sunday. On our request, when the water level was reduced, we started searching for the bodies on Monday but without success till now.
Rajkot Inspector SM Vasava said that three teenagers who went swimming in a dam on Khirsara road in Jetpur town of the district on Sunday evening drowned. They have been identified as Sahil Makwana (18), Pankaj Vaswani (18) and Sumit Marathi (19), he said.
Vasava said that on seeing a body floating in the dam, passersby informed the police and after that a search operation was started. The divers of the fire brigade have recovered the three bodies, he said.
