Watery grave in money fishing

A 20 year old youth met watery grave when he was fishing out money at a waterbody body in Guwahati on Tuesday. The tragic incident took place when he joined scores of people who landed in the waterbody to collect currency notes that were found floating on the water on Monday.


The youth dived into the Silsako Beel in the morning along with some other eager beavers to look for and pocket the currency notes floating on the water. Eyewitnesses said the youth was probably not a good swimmer. The district administration issued strict orders prohibiting anyone from entering the water body. Police were yet to find the source of the floating currency notes.
