Girl washed away in Mantralaya



Residents of Yagavabandlakere village, Bhoopalareddy, his wife and three daughters left for Mantralaya three days back. Since there was heavy flooding of water on the roads, the family decided to leave their vehicle behind and took an APSRTC bus instead.

 However, when they were just three kilometre away from Mantralaya, the bus was stopped due to the rising water levels on the road. When the family alighted from the bus, Kavya accidentally fell into a ditch nearby and drowned.

Kavya was studying in class 4 at the Sri Pragati Educational Institution here. Students and Lalitha Mirza, from the institution’s management, attended the funeral organised on Saturday.

“Kavya was the ‘twinkle star’ of our school and in her memory, we will organise a mass prayer service on October 22 and will also provide free education to any student chosen by her parents,” Mirza said.
