They halted for a moment at Bindravani alongside the Chandigarh-Manali highway. Jasdeep Singh, a native of Kharar of Punjab, went towards the Beas. He lost his balance and slipped into the river.

According to the police, despite warnings from locals and those present there, Jasdeep Singh ventured to the river with four friends and slipped into the Beas, prompting his friends and others to attempt a rescue. Amid frantic efforts, one youth was rescued by a migrant labourer, while Jasdeep could not be saved.
