Puttur: 22-year-old Youth Preparing to Attend Kin’s Wedding Drowns in Netravati River

Puttur: Chandrashekhar (22), son of Ariappa Naik of Arla in Nellyadi village, drowned in river Netravati on Sunday morning.

He had arrived at a relative’s house at Bollaru near Nekkilady to attend his marriage. Since there were many guests at home, he did not wait for his turn to go for a bath at home. Instead, he proceeded to the river to save time.

While bathing, he was dragged by river currents. As he screamed for help, there was no one around. By the time others arrived, it was too late to save him.

His body was fished out and sent to Puttur government hospital for autopsy.

The deceased was the sole breadwinner, working as a driver, esp., after his father has been in ill-health for long.
