The deceased – two women and two men – had stepped out with a group of about 20 persons from Paschim Vihar to take a dip in Yamuna river following Ganesh Visarjan ceremony. 

A search operation was initiated in the area immediately. 

However, due to a rise in water level in the Yamuna and low light, the search operation was stopped at night.

On September 10, six children - four girls and two boys - drowned in a pond near a village in Karnataka`s Kolar Gold Fields (KGF) town on Tuesday while immersing idols of Lord Ganesh.
