Vijay, a friend of the deceased Priyanshu, told that when Priyanshu’s slippers fell in the river, he went to the river to take out the slippers, but he did not know the depth of the pit made in the river, so he got trapped and drowned. After the information of the people around, the police and SDRF teams started the search operation. The recovered body was kept in the mortuary of the Government Base Hospital by the police. At the same time, people angry with the matter demanded to stop the work of channelization by pelting stones on the miners. In this case, Kotdwar SDM Yogesh Mehra ordered an inquiry into the matter.
