Search in Meenachil called off

KOTTAYAM: The search for bodies of the victims of Tuesdays bus accident in the Meenachil river at Thazhathangadi was called off on Wednesday evening.

According to district authorities, the decision to call off the search was made after the divers muddied the bottom of the river at the accident site using propellers to ascertain whether any more victims were caught in the muddy depths of the river. The experiment produced no results. In addition to divers from the Indian Navy, a team from a private agency, Inter Dive, participated in the search operations.
