Efforts to retrieve ball caused their lives

The Post Mortem of the dead bodies of the four students of Beary’s Institute of Technology (BIT) who had drowned in river Nethravathi at Sunnadakallu, Boliyaru near Mudipu on Sunday, was conducted at Government Wenlock Hospital on Monday.

Bodies of Suban Khaleel, Rinhas Nazar, C Sifhan, Mohammad Shifaaz, all first semester students were recovered on Monday and were rushed to the hospital at 10.30 am from Pharangipet for the procedures.

The students aged about 18 years hailed from Kerala and according to sources in the College all the four were talented students. They had joined BIT after completing their schooling and PU education in Kerala. Suban Khaleel hailed from a village named Chokli in Telicherry. C Sifhan is the son of army Hawaldar named C Usman. Usman had joined the army as a truck driver and was recently promoted as Hawaldar.

Amidst the happiness of the promotion the strong heart of an army man could not take the news of the death of his son. Safwan hailed from Kuthuparamba in Kerala and the family members have decided to wait for Usman to come from Delhi to perform the rites.

Born to a plywood businessman named Harris, Mohommad Shifas studied under difficult circumstances at Neeleshwar but Harris-Reyhanath couple could not believe their eyes as they saw the dead body of their son who would have been a strong support to the family. Rinhaz Nazar from Kerala accompanied his friends in the game and to the watery grave too.

A group of twelve  had gone to the waterfront to spend their holiday despite the fact that they had to face examination on Monday.

They had started playing  on the bank of the river when the ball pounced over and fell into the river. Five out of 12 plunged into the river to search for the ball. While one boy was rescued the remaining four returned still.

After the Post Mortem the dead bodies were taken to Jumma Masjid in Bunder for religious rituals. After the ‘Mayuth’ namaaz, the bodies were given a bath and were covered with the ‘Kafhan’. The bodies were taken to their respective villages by the families of the deceased.

Mangalore MLA U T Khader  and Kasargod MLA N A Nellikkunnu  visited the hospital and convey the condolence.
