In another case of selfie enthusiasts putting their lives at risk, a dozen Indian students were swept away while trying for a pose deep into the Kosi river in Rampur in Uttar Pradesh. Two students were drowned while 10 others were rescued by divers alerted by the boys' frantic shrieks for help.

According to eyewitnesses, the boys had ventured deep into the river and were busy clicking selfies when they were caught unawares by sudden flow of water released from the nearby Lalpur dam. The bodies of the two, Saif Ali Khan and Faizi, were recovered four hours later.

Azeem Nagar station house officer Kushalveer Singh said, "The group of youngsters on a picnic were carrying mobile phones and wanted selfies of themselves in the river. They had gone to points of dangerous depths and were swept away by sudden waves.

The statements of the rescued boys have been recorded. The families of the demised have refused permission for postmortem, thus authorities have handed over the bodies to them.
