NORTH LAKHIMPUR, June 23 - Three young girls belonging to the same neighbourhood lost their lives while crossing a river on a boat in Dhakuakhana subdivision of Lakhimpur district today.

The three girls � Lulumoni Taid (12), Sunita Tawo (10) and Hemamalini Pawo (9) drowned as the boat in which they were crossing the Champora river in Ayengiya village, Bebejia in Dhakuakhana capsized. The boat was hand-oared by the young girls, like they do everyday when they cross the river.

Lulumoni, a student of Class VI, and the two others, studying in Class IV, were crossing the river to meet their parents working in fields on the other side. The villagers present on the river bank rushed to the rescue of the girls, but none of them could be brought to land alive.

The tragic incident once again brings to the fore the daily ordeal the villagers endure while travelling in interior areas in Lakhimpur district where road communication is still hampered by lack of bridges over rivers.
