They were close relatives. Mohan Naik has left behind his mother, brother and a sister while Suresh Naik is survived by parents and a brother.

Both the deceased were from poor families and because of the impact of the lockdown, had no regular jobs and therefore they worked as coolies.

It is believed that accidentally they would have slipped and drowned. As they did not return for long, people went searching for them and found footwear near the rivulet.
