Incident synopsis

On Saturday night, there was a power cut at the house and the woman went out to relieve herself when, it is suspected that she might have accidentally fallen into the drain there and got washed away. In this backdrop, the locals began searching for the woman during the night itself but to no avail. Later, divers and fire brigade personnel carried out continuous search for the woman at the river to which the drain connects, but to no avail as well. The water inflow at the river has increased and hence played a spoilsport during the search.
