    Now they have been able to enjoy "Freedom" after a lapse of almost 30 years. While being on a pilgrimage, poor girl lost her life, may be due to the negligence of parents. However, everyone should be very careful, whenever they select a place to bathe. Awareness of danger areas and due care and attention from parents, a vital factor to prevent similar type of tragic incidents in the future.
