Kottayam: The bodies of two school students, who went missing in the Minachil river on Thursday, were recovered Saturday morning.
The deceased S. Anandu, 14, hailing from Puthuparambil house in Parampuzha, and Deepu, 16, hailing from Mariyankulathil house in Parampuzha, were reported missing after they had gone for a bath in the river at Parampuzha.
The incident occurred when Deepu slipped from a river-front point and Anandu jumped into the river to save him. Both were caught in the strong current and have remained untraceable.
Anandu is a Class 9 student of MD Seminary School and Deepu is a Class 10 student of St. Sebastian’s Public School in Peroor.
