DIGBOI, September 14: Two devotees of Karam Puja, popular among the tea tribe in Assam, met a watery grave here on Sunday morning during the immersion and both the bdoies were recovered on Monday from Dibru river in Pengree under Pengaree Police Station in Tinsukia district. According to sources, the deceased who were identified as Pooja Sautal (11) and Anil Tasa (37), belonged to Pengaree Adarsh village. They had gone to the confluence of Dwarmara-Dibru river on Sunday morning and were drawn into the river and went missing. However, after a long futile search operation by the rescue team carried out on Sunday, the corpses were recovered by local people from the Dibru river this morning. Meanwhile, there is resentment among the local people over the alleged indifferent attitude of the local civil administration while responding to the situation. Following the postmortem and police formalities, the last rites of the deceased were carried out in the presence of a large number of mourners.
