    The boat was carrying 13 people from Kotlindora village in Thasra taluka to Pavagadh, a pilgrimage site, on the other side of Mahisagar river when it sank, said a Dakor police station official. He identified the 16-year-old who drowned as Hardik Chavda.

    "The boat ride is a shorter route to reach Pavagadh from Kheda. Two out of the twelve people who swam to safety have injuries and they were taken to Dakor civil hospital for treatment," he said.
