Two teenagers drown at the Dhankot canal
Drowning news are making headlines in India these days. Gurgaon was shocked to hear of the death of two friends at the Dhankot canal on Monday. The two had gone to the canal with three other friends to take a bath.

14 year old Dipanshu, a native of Agra and one 15 year old Vishnu, resident of Shivaji Nagar, had gone to the canal with three other friends to take a bath. The other three friends shouted for help but did not enter the water as they did not know how to swim.

The police was informed when the bodies of the two were fished out by the local residents. Police said that as none of them knew swimming, the two drowned when they slipped on entering the water to take a bath. It appeared to be an accident to the police.

Sub inspector Satbir Singh said, ''The spot was not ideal for a bath as it is a very slippery place. They might have got stuck in the swamp-like area and were unable to come out. But we will investigate if there was any foul play.''

The families of the two, however, were completely unaware that the deceased had gone to the canal for a bath and instead, they told the family members that they were going to Tau Devi Lal stadium. As reported by Rakesh Kumar, a neighbor of the victims said, ''During the summer vacations, they used to go for boxing practice every day.''

Earlier, a thirty year old man had drowned after placing a bet with two friends in the first week of June. The local residents claim that despite a number of accidents taking place in the canal, there has been no sign put up by the district administration to make people aware or exercise caution in the area.
