Two mothers who were going to bathe in the Godavari river drowned in a well dug to sink the sand. The incident took place in Mahatpuri in Majalgaon taluka on Friday. One of the deceased is a resident of Manyarwadi (Tal. Gevrai) and the other is a resident of Anandwadi (Tal. Partur, Dist. Jalna).
Deepali Gangadharrao Barbade (20 years old) and Swati Arun Chavan (12 years old) drowned on June 3 in Mahatpuri, Beed district. She had gone to the Godavari river basin to wash clothes with her aunt. As they bathed in that place, they did not notice the well they had dug. Seeing Swati drown, Deepali tried to catch her. But they both drowned. Women screamed and people ran to the rescue. But by then, they had both disappeared into the water. After an hour, the villagers managed to find the bodies of the two.
An accidental death has been registered with the Majalgaon police based on the information provided by Laxman Shingade in this case.
