Narrow escape for 250 IITians

At least 250 IITians had a narrow escape when the ferry carrying them struck on the river Brahmaputra on Saturday.

According to reports, the ferry which brought them back to North Guwahati from a picnic spot suddenly struck at sand in the middle of the mighty river. The wind that blew in the afternoon compounded the problem.

It needed the rescue team and the ferry men three hours to bail out the IIT students from the jaws of death.
