Indore (Madhya Pradesh): In a tragic incident, two minor boys drowned in Sirpur Lake and their bodies were recovered by a rescue team on Sunday. They and two of their friends had gone for a bathe in the lake on Saturday afternoon and, when they reached the deep end of the water body, they drowned. Their friends were scared of the incident and did not reveal the matter to anyone on Saturday.
