Classmates of the three, and local Fire Service sources said, 12 first-year students of Ideal College came for a visit to the area, and went swimming in the Dhaleshwari River.

Four of them swam to the middle of the river. Although one student managed to make it back to the river bank, three have remained missing.

The teacher, along with some students and colleagues, hired a boat for amusement in the beel (water body), Shafiqur Rahman, Officer-in-Charge of Naldanga police station, said.

As soon as the boat reached the middle of the water body, a female teacher fell into the water, the OC said.
