Two dead, six missing: Boat with 40 school students overturns in India

Palghar Superintendent of Police Manjunath Singe was quoted as saying by PTI that the three deceased have been identified as - Sonal Bhagwan Surati, Janhavi Harish Surati, and Sanskruti Mayavanshi.

The students, who are aged 16 to 17 years, reside in villages and hamlets in and around Dahanu.

The students were on a picnic. Even a message from coast guard said that they have diverted ships which were at sea and also ships which were sailing from Mumbai.

For days, the county had issued repeated warnings via social media, news media and emails about the potential for mudslides . The evacuation order came as authorities announced a spike in the number of residents still unaccounted for.

However, a senior CG officer today said the boat was carrying 35 students, of whom three drowned. "As many students had climbed on to the deck, the boat tilted to one side and capsized", the officer said. The Indian Coast Guard pressed its rescue vessels into service and 30 people were rescued.

Three persons, including the owner of the boat, were arrested by the Palghar police late Saturday evening. An offence would be registered against those responsible for the tragedy, the SP said.

Dahanu is a coastal town and a municipal council in Palghar district of Maharashtra state in Konkan division. Three teen girls died in the incident, according to a statement from the Indian Coast Guard.

The toll is likely to release, reports said.
