Two children have reportedly drowned at Asutsuare, in the Eastern on Monday.
Local reports say the kids drowned when they were attempting to retrieve their water containers from an irrigation dam dug for rice farmers.
According to an eyewitness, the children had gone to fetch water from the dam due to water shortage in the town.
The water shortage has been attributed to ongoing construction works in the area.
“They got the boy first and later they had to search for the girl… they found their water containers and their clothes at the bank of the river,” he recounted further.
