In a heartbreaking development, the bodies of two missing youths have been recovered from the flooded Yamuna river in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh. The victims, identified as 21-year-old Dhiraj and 17-year-old Sanjit, had gone missing while bathing in the river on Sunday. The Yamuna river has been flowing above the danger mark for several days due to heavy monsoon rains, making it extremely dangerous.
Intensive Search Operation Leads to Recovery
Upon filing a missing report, the local police launched a search operation with the assistance of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), State Disaster Response Force (SDRF), and local divers. After an intensive search that began on Sunday, the bodies of Dhiraj and Sanjit were tragically found in the Yamuna river near Rampur Khadar village on Monday. The bodies have been sent for autopsy, and further legal proceedings are currently underway.
Greater Noida Struggles with Flooding
Greater Noida, situated between the Yamuna and Hindon rivers, is part of the Gautam Buddh Nagar district and has been severely affected by the ongoing floods. The region has experienced significant damage and loss due to the rising water levels. According to official figures, over 8,700 people have been affected by the floods, and approximately 6,300 animals have been displaced. The release of three lakh cusecs of water from the Hathnikund barrage has caused a substantial increase in the water level of the Yamuna river, resulting in the submergence of nearby villages.
