A tragic incident has occurred in the Singhpora Pattan area of North Kashmir’s Baramulla district, where a minor girl drowned to death on Sunday. The unfortunate incident has left the community in shock and mourning.

The victim has been identified as Shabnam Jan, the 13-year-old daughter of Ghulam Mohammad Qureshi, a resident of Singhpura. The incident took place while Shabnam was taking a bath in the spill channel of Singhpura.

An official from the area informed News Agency Kashmir Scroll about the tragedy. According to the official, Shabnam’s drowning has prompted immediate rescue operations in an effort to retrieve her body from the spill channel.

Despite the swift response from the rescue teams, the operation is ongoing, and the community holds onto a glimmer of hope for a positive outcome. The local authorities and volunteers are working tirelessly to locate Shabnam.

The incident has not only shocked the residents of Singhpura but has also highlighted the dangers posed by local water bodies, especially during the warmer months when children are more likely to bathe in them.

In the wake of this tragic event, the local police have taken cognizance of the incident. They are likely to conduct a thorough investigation to understand the circumstances leading to Shabnam’s drowning and to prevent such incidents in the future.

The death of Shabnam Jan serves as a heartbreaking reminder of the need for increased safety measures around water bodies, particularly for children. The community is urged to be vigilant and to educate their children on the dangers of swimming in unmonitored areas.

As the rescue operation continues, the thoughts and prayers of the entire community are with Shabnam’s family during this difficult time. The loss of a young life is always a profound tragedy, and the community stands in solidarity with the bereaved family.
