Drowned man’s body found

Tura, May 16: The body of a 45 year old man, John Ch Marak was fished out from the vicinity of the Pelga Wari (Pelga Falls) after he went missing.
Marak had apparently gone fishing and was reported missing since April 13 from near the water body on the Ganol River. He was a resident of the Balading locality of Tura in West Garo Hills.
Since he was reported missing from near the falls, a search was launched yesterday. Despite the search by the Fire and Emergency Services (F&ES) and the SDRF, Marak could not be found till yesterday evening.
However, early this morning his body was found between Banseng Wari and Do Mesai, about 1-2 kms from the Pelga Falls, from where he was reported missing.
Necessary legal formalities were later completed before the body was handed over to the family members this evening.
