NEW DELHI, Jan 13 (Agencies): A boat with 40 school children on board capsized near Maharashtra's Dahanu on Friday, a news agency ANI report said. At least four students have lost their lives while 32 have been rescued so far.

District Collector Prashant Narnaware said that the incident occurred this morning off the Dahanu coast. "Massive rescue and relief operations are underway and District Superintendent of Police and local officials are supervising the operations," he said.

The boat had set off from the Parnaka Beach here. It was two nautical miles from the shore when the incident occurred. Rescue operations are underway to locate the missing. Reports suggest that the boat capsized due to overload.

The Indian Coast Guard is helping the police and maritime authorities in the combined sea and air operations. It has diverted at least three ships and two aircrafts to the site as part of the rescue operation. A coast guard PRO confirmed and said, "The ICG has diverted ships which were at sea and ships are also sailing from Mumbai. Dornier aircraft and helicopters from Daman have also been launched."

Dahanu is in Maharashtra`s Palghar district and is about 110 kilometers from Mumbai.
