Four boys from Ramanagaram drown in Arkavathy

Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: Four boys were washed away in the Arkavathy at Hallimala village in the Ramanagaram rural police station limits here on Tuesday.

The four boys had reportedly gone to swim in the river when it started raining heavily. The victims were identified as Syed Jameel (10), Masood Ahmed (10), Sameer (15), and Munna (14). They had reportedly gone to a darga in Hallimala when they decided to take a swim in the Arkavathy.

They were washed away in the heavy current of the river. The victims' bodies were later recovered and a post-mortem was conducted at the Ramanagaram government hospital. All four were residents of Ramanagaram town.

Heavy rains also lashed the city on Tuesday, flooding many low-lying areas and uprooting many trees. While motorists struggled to move their vehicles on waterlogged roads, a number of trees were uprooted in Malleswaram, Chamarajpet and R.P.C. Layout. Richmond Road, HAL 3rd Stage, Indiranagar 100 ft. road were inundated.

In the heart of the city, the showers caused traffic jams at many junctions, reducing vehicular movement to a crawl.
