According to reports, Dhawde, from Pune's Bhosari, had gone with a group of 32 others from his gym for a weekend outing on Saturday. They were following the Plus Valley trek route in Tamhini Ghat when the incident occurred.

This tragic incident follows another recent one where five family members were swept away on Sunday afternoon due to a sudden surge in water levels at a popular tourist spot near Bhushi Dam in Lonavala. While the bodies of a 36-year-old woman and two girls, aged 13 and 8, were discovered, authorities are still searching for a nine-year-old boy and a four-year-old girl. Continuous rainfall in recent days led to an unexpected increase in water flow at the waterfall where the family had stopped.

The victims have been identified as Sahista Liyaqat Ansari, 36, Amima Salman, 13, Umera Salman, 8, Adnan Ansari, 4, and Maria Ansari, 9.
