Madikeri, Sep 14: A schoolboy, who was part of a Ganesh immersion procession, drowned in a pond at Arashinakuppe near Kushalnagar in Kodgau district.

The victim has been identified as Hemanth (13), son of Ananth Kumar and Padma couple from Arashinakuppe. He was a student of the government school at Siddalingapura.

According to sources, around a dozen boys took a Ganesha idol in a small procession and immersed it in a pond yesterday afternoon. One of the boys, Hemanth, lost balance while immersing the idol and drowned.

The other boys could not save Hemanth as no one knew how to swim in the deep water. They screamed for help, but in vain. The idol of Ganesha, which is considered as “the destroyer of all obstacles”, too did not respond.

A case has been registered at Kushalnagar rural police station and investigations are on.

I think, its not the mistake of that boy. Usually procession and immersion will be over crowded. That may be the reason

If he is not an expert in swimming then why he went? anybody forced him to do?

Nobody will force. But all are doing in  a spirit. In a celebration mood
