Panvel taluka police sub-inspector S S Gurav told Times of India, "The teenagers went to a small waterfall. The others screamed for help when Anurag did not surface. The three others are Rushikesh Gawde (17), Shivam Singh (16) and Ritvik Sharma (18). Anurag may have slipped on a stone before being hit on his head. The water depth is around 20 metres. An accidental death case has been registered and his body has been handed over to his family."

The four friends were school friends but were studying in different colleges.

Earlier an 8-year-old Maharashtra boy died while allegedly attempting to perform a stunt in front of his friends in Panvel's Padghe village on November 7.
