Srinagar: A family of five had a miraculous escape during the intervening night of Thursday and Friday after their houseboat sank into river Jhelum in Srinagar.

The family has been rendered homeless. The houseboat was located near the Museum in Lal Mandi locality of Srinagar.

The family had a narrow escape as water entered the houseboat and it sank. They jumped out of it and saved themselves from drowning.

Mohammad Ashraf Kahankashi, owner of the houseboat, said “We have now been rendered homeless as we don’t have any shelter elsewhere. We are now putting up in a neighbour’s houseboat.”

He said that he cannot afford to repair the houseboat on his own as the same costs around Rs 1.5 lakh, while they do not have the resources to afford the repairing cost.
