In the Perniya area of Boniyar in the Baramulla district, a young girl died when she fell into an irrigation canal.
An official said that a young girl named Rukaya Bashir, who lived in Nowpora Jagir and was the daughter of Bashir Ahmad Ganaie, fell into the canal.
He said that the class 9 student was waiting for the school bus near the Lower Jhelum Hydroelectric power Project (LJHP) canal when she slipped and fell into the canal.
Soon after the accident, a search operation was started to find her body, and it was found. The water supply to the canal was cut off, which helped get the body out, the official said.
He said that the body was given to her family after all the legal and medical paperwork was done.
Vikramjeet Singh, the Tehsildar of Boniyar, said that fencing would soon be put up along the LJHP, especially in places where accidents are likely to happen.
