GUWAHATI, Nov 24 - Two youths drowned in the Brahmaputra this evening at the Hatisila picnic spot here.
According to police, the deceased were identified as Jayanta Pathak (22) and Sanib Das (21). They hailed from Nalbari and Gitanagar of Guwahati respectively.
Sources said the two youths were part of a nine-member group, who went to Hatisila to spend the holiday. They were probably drunk and drowned in the river while going to take a bath, sources said.
Chandrapur Circle Officer Pallav Jyoti Nath said the group of youths entered the Hatisila picnic spot without obtaining any permission from the administration.
Last year, due to some technical reasons, the Kamrup Metro administration had imposed a restriction on this picnic spot and the restriction is still in force.
