13 Pune Students Drown in Beach


A ghastly incident in which 13 students from Pune drowned in a beach took place at Murud Beach in Raigad on Monday. Going into detail..

About 112 students, 8 teachers and 3 non-teaching staff members of Abeda Inamdar Senior College in Pune went for an excursion to Murud beach. They started at about 7:00 AM at their college in three buses. While everything was fine till lunch time, some students went for a swim while the others were having food. When they were suddenly pulled into the sea, fishermen rushed to rescue them. They could rescue only some of the students and 13 of them drowned. Eight of the drowned students were girls and 3 boys. One other is missing.
