Shimla, July 21
Nirmal (20) and Vikas (19) of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh respectively came to visit Palampur's Saurabh Van Vihar but suddenly water flew from the hills, engulfed them and swept them into Neugal Khad, a tributary of river Beas.
The police and fire brigade personnel started the operation to rescue them soon after getting the information, the official said on Sunday.
Palampur sub divisional magistrate Pankaj Sharma also reached the spot to supervise the rescue operation.
Both were rescued after about two-hour continuous efforts by the police and the fire brigade, he said, adding they were pursuing BTech in Hamirpur's National Institute of Technology (NIT). —PTI
