Students are heard screaming for help in the video. This video also refutes the claims made by the authorities that sirens were sounded before releasing the water.

About 60 students and faculty members of the VNR Vignana Jyothi Institute of Engineering and Technology in Hyderabad were on an excursion to Manali when 25 of them were washed away in flash floods following sudden release of water from reservoir of Larji hydropower project near Thalot on Sunday evening.




The sightseeing trip to Himachal Pradesh turned tragic for the Hyderabad students who were taking photographs on the bank of the river when gushing waters of the Beas swept them away after water was suddenly released from the reservoir of 126 MW Larji hydropower project.

The students were thrown into the middle of the river. While some managed to reach the bank, others were swept away. Some students were drowned while trying to save others, police said.

Only five bodies had been recovered since Tuesday as efforts were on to fish out more.

Andhra Pradesh government on Tuesday announced an ex-gratia payment of Rs 5 lakh each to the kin of the 24 students who were washed away. Announcing the ex-gratia, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said that this would be in addition to Rs 1.5 lakh announced by the Himachal Pradesh government.
