On July 30, 2010, Shiv Prasad, along with his friends had gone to visit the Vamilla River near their college since it was overflowing with rain water. He said, We wanted to see the flood water as it had been raining heavily since the last 3 days.
I went there with my friends. A woman was trying to cross the river and wanted to go to the agricultural fields on the other side. Since the flow was very strong she fell off into the river. I immediately jumped into the river and dragged her to the other side of the river.”
