Four youngsters died while fishing in a dam in Jharkhand's Garhwa district, police said on Friday.

As per preliminary investigation, the four youths hailing from Nayakhad village died due to suffocation after getting trapped in the supply pipe of Bhabni Khad Dam, Banshidhar Nagar Sub-divisional Police Officer Pramod Kumar Kesri said.

The four deceased, along with five others, had gone to the dam for fishing on Thursday night.
