The boys, identified as Amandeep Singh, son of Kamaljeet Singh, and Nakshpreet Singh, son of Kulveer Singh, are both residents of Choki. According to an official report by the Kashmir Scroll, the two boys were enjoying their time in the river when they suddenly found themselves in trouble.

Passersby and local residents noticed the boys in distress and rushed to their aid. The community quickly mobilized to rescue the two young boys from the river’s strong currents. After a strenuous effort, they managed to pull both boys out of the water and rushed them to the nearby Sub-District Hospital (SDH) in Nowshera.
