Dhar, Jul 23 (PTI) Three minor sisters drowned in a pond at a village in Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh, police said on Saturday.

The incident occurred at Khatami village on Friday evening, they said.

The siblings drowned when they were playing in the water, he said.

After the parents of the girls, who were working in an agriculture farm, got to know about the incident, they alerted the police, Patidar added.

The bodies of the girls were retrieved from the pond later and sent for post-mortem, he said.
