Dhanbad: Two students of the
Indian School of Mines were drowned in the Bhatinda Falls
about 20 km away under Putki police station last evening,
police sources said on Monday.

The two, Gutrubida Ashok Kumar from Vijaywada and
Nandyal Babu Gautam from Hyderabad, had gone for a picnic at
the waterfall with eleven friends, the sources said.

Though both were swimmers, they drowned when they
entered the water for a bath, they said.

ISM director DC Pangrahi and Registrar Col M K Singh
reached the spot with a team late in the evening and rigged up
lights with the help of a generator, but the bodies could not
be traced.
