Hyderabad: Four women, working in a private firm, on Sunday drowned in Krishna river at Amaravathi in Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh, police said.

Seven women employees of a private company from the district had gone to Amaravathi for picnic this morning and six of them ventured into the river for a bath, they said.

"The mishap occurred after they entered the river and accidentally slipped into the deep waters and drowned. None of them knew how to swim. Locals managed to rescue the two other women," a police officer told PTI over phone.

The bodies of the four women in the age-group of 20-27 were recovered, he said.

A colleague of the deceased who did not venture into the river said "even before some local swimmers jumped into the river, the four women drowned."

Amaravathi police have registered a case. Further investigations were on.
