Pune witnessed two heart-wrenching incidents during the immersion of Lord Ganesha idols under the jurisdiction of Pimpri Chinchwad Police. These events unfolded on Thursday evening, casting a shadow over the festive celebrations.
In a deeply saddening incident in Moshi, a five-year-old boy lost his life. While participating in the immersion ritual, he accidentally fell into an artificial immersion tank near his society, resulting in a tragic outcome.
In a separate incident near Gahunje, a man involved in the immersion ritual met a distressing fate as he drowned in the Pawana River. Despite the valiant efforts of bystanders to rescue him from the high waters, their attempts proved futile, prompting the involvement of a dedicated rescue team. The rescuers continued their search late into the evening, yet the missing individual remained unaccounted for.
