Two Feared Drowned in Mumbai Sea


Mumbai: A college girl and a youth, who jumped into the waters to save her, were on Saturday feared drowned in the sea off Bandra Bandstand, police said.

Three college girls, all residents of Bainganwadi in suburban Govandi, aged between 18 and 19 years, had come to the sea-face to picnic this morning, a senior police officer said.

They were clicking pictures when one of them, Taranum, slipped into the sea, he said. Hearing their screams, a local youth, Ramesh, jumped into the sea to rescue the girl, the officer said.

However, the duos are believed to have been swept away in the high tide as they have not been traced yet, he said.
