New Delhi: Four days after the Mandi tragedy, a video of the incident shot by a local has come to light showing chilling scenes of death of 24 students of Hyderabad engineering college.

The four minute video shows how the water level suddenly rose, hardly giving time to the victims to respond.

The video apparently shot by some local person shows the students standing on the boulders in the river bed amid the swirling river.

The video, now on YouTube, shows a wall of gushing waters suddenly hitting the merrymaking students and then sweeping them away.

Rescue teams today fished out the sixth body of another student from the Beas River and intensified the hunt for 19 others missing even as a case of negligence has been registered against authorities of the Larji Hydropower project in connection with the incident that occurred on Sunday.  

A team of 84 people, comprising 20 NDRF divers, assisted by 18 divers of the army are searching the bodies and chances of the bodies flowing downstream Pandoh Dam are very dim.
