Three college students from Dhaka went missing while taking bath in Dhaleshwari River on Saturday.
The victims – Mehedi, 17, Rajon, 17, and Akash, 18 – are first-year students of Ideal School and College in Dhanmondi.
Savar Fire Service’s Station Officer Lition Ahmed said 12 students of the college had come to Bank Town, adjacent to the Dhaka-Aricha Highway, for a river cruise.
“Three of them went missing shortly after they got into the river to take bath around noon. Another student was rescued and taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital,” he said.
Divers are scouring the river, the officer added.
