"Around 8 pm, information was received that three boys have entered into the water and haven't returned," the Delhi Police said, adding that it was found that a group of four boys jumped over the wall and entered the under-construction golf course in the area of Dwarka Sector 23 police station.

The fourth boy, who did not enter the water pit, alerted the authorities.
