Four Telugu students, all pursuing Engineering, are feared to have drowned in a pond in West Godavari district on Saturday. They were reportedly on an outing when they went missing.
Police, who searched the area chosen by the students to make their picnic spot, said they had found the students' backpacks and lunchboxes near the pond. The reports suggest that the students might have laid their backpacks nearby, and decided to jump into the pond for a quick swim. With more than 24 hours gone by since they went missing, police and parents fear the students might have drowned in the pond.
All the four students are pursuing Engineering course in Ramachandra College of Engineering, Eluru. An extensive search is on to find them.
