Kolkata: A teenager who had gone for a swim with his friends drowned in a pond near his home in the Bansdroni area on Tuesday.
Two boys, aged around 15, were seen panicking near Majumdar Pukur at Northern Park around 10.20am, local residents said. The boys told the local residents that a friend — later identified as Tamsur Sardar, 15, alias Tinku — who was bathing with them in the pond could not be spotted.
Tamsur’s body was fished out around 20 minutes later. He was declared dead in hospital. The family, residents of Brahmapur, has not lodged a complaint.
