Two bodies recovered from Arunachal’s Pare river
The Papum Pare police and the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) recovered two bodies from the Pare river in Arunachal Pradesh on Monday.
The deceased have been identified as Rajat Chakroborty and Munim Kalita, residents of Naharlagun. The incident happened on Sunday.
“Rajat Chakroborty and Munim Kalita were together, partying. Around five in the evening, the NEEPCO authorities released water as usual. It seems the duo did not hear the warning siren,” Papum Pare Superintendent of Police (SP) Neelam Nega said.
Meanwhile, Nega appealed to the NEEPCO authorities to carry out large-scale publicity to educate the people on the matter.
The siren system should be in place at all strategic places along the Pare river. Along with the blowing of the siren, authorities should also resound a voice warning, he said.
“I will write to the NEEPCO authorities to look into it and bring out a solution,” Nega added.
The Doimukh police have lodged an unnatural death case.
