Lucknow: Seven children were feared drowned after a van fell into the Indira canal in Lucknow, district officials said on June 20.

The van carrying 29 people, who were returning from a marriage ceremony, fell into the canal on June 19 night, Lucknow District Magistrate Kaushal Raj Sharma said, adding that 22 of them have been rescued.

“As many as seven children, all in the age group of 5-10 years, are missing. They might have been washed away to a significant distance as the flow of water in the canal is rather high...rescue operations are on,” Mr. Sharma told PTI.
