    The girl, Anvitha Shetty was cruising in the river along with her family, from Mumbai, when tragedy struck them yesterday, they said.

    Her father Shivaprasad Shetty, an IT professional, immediately dove into the waters to rescue her, but in vain, they added. The crew of the houseboat and locals managed to pull out Shetty, who could barely swim, but could not save the girl, police said.
