32 students have been rescued, after a boat with 40 school children on board capsized two nautical miles from the seashore in Maharashtra's Dahanu earlier today.
Overloading is said to be the cause of the mishap.
"Coast Guard has diverted ships which were at sea and ships are also sailing from Mumbai. Dornier aircraft and helicopters from Daman (near to Dahanu) have also been launched," the Coast guard PRO had said earlier.
The rescue operation is on.
