Anil jumped from a height and sank into the water, but failed to come up. Efforts by the police and fire brigade did not succeed.
The Kavoor police have registered a case. There have been many deaths at the spot during the past years. The locals have demanded that safeguards should be put up and restrictions should be imposed to save lives.
