Beas tragedy in video: How the Himachal adventure trip turned into a tragedy for Hyderabad students
A video of the recent Himachal Pradesh tragedy which happened near the banks of Beas river has come out. The video which was released by Hindi daily Amar Ujala, shows how the students were struggling to rescue themselves but finally got swept away in the strong current of the water.

The ill-fated group of students of the Hyderabad based engineering college were merrily taking photos on the banks of Beas river in Himachal Pradesh's Mandi district. While they were busy in clicking picture, Larji Power Project released water from its dam in a order to reduce the generation of power and that too allegedly without any warning hooter.

The video shows that, the students were doing photography while standing on the rocks near the bank of the river. And then suddenly the water flow increased and within minutes it swept away the students. 24 students were washed away and only five bodies have been recovered till now.

The students who have survived from this tragedy are saying that they have asked the locals before entering the river bed. The students said that they did not listen any siren, meant for alerting the people about the release of water from the dam, nor there were any danger mark signboards on the river bank.
