Mumbai: Two people are feared drowned off the popular Juhu beach in Mumbai on Friday evening, while three others have been rescued.

A group of five friends, all residents of Juhu Koliwada area, went to the famous beach at around 12:30 PM for swimming, a official from Santa Cruz Police Station said.

On-duty lifeguards and Fire Brigade personnel warned them against entering into the sea, Chief Fire Officer Prabhat Rahangadale said.

The youngsters, however, went to a different spot away from the main beach front and ventured into the sea. They soon started drowning, he said.

Three of them were promptly rescued by lifeguards and Fire Brigade personnel, while the other two were yet to be traced, Rahangadale said.

According to police, the duo feared drowned was identified as Rajendra Chowdhury (20) and Sameer Sheikh (18).
