Locals said that a group of children, including the trio, had been attempting to hang an Argentine flag from a mango tree near their home around 1pm. After being advised against it due to the midday heat, the three victims along with another left the tree and headed to the river to take a bath.

Shortly after, locals were informed about the incident by the lone survivor and rushed there. They found them floating on the river and recovered the three bodies.

It was claimed that Sabbir lost his life trying to save the younger boys.
