Two engineering students drown at Debjharan | Bhubaneswar News

SAMBALPUR: The picnic trip of some engineering students of Veer Surendra Sai University of Technology (VSSUT), Burla, to Debjharan under Jujumura police station limits turned tragic when two students drowned while taking a bath in the waterfall on Saturday.
The deceased students have been identified as Abhijit Samal of Hindalco Colony, Hirakud, and Soumya Ranjan Behuria of Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. Both were third year computer science students.
Sources said around 47 students of final year and IIIrd year of the department of computer science of VSSUT had gone to Debjharan. However, Abhijit and Soumya went to the waterfall for a bath. Some visitors, who were present at the spot, rescued the two students and admitted them to Jujumura Community Health Center (CHC). But the students were declared dead.
Police seized the bodies and sent those for autopsy. Police have also informed their parents.
Professor in-charge, public relations of VSSUT, Burla, P C Swain said, though Saturday is a working day and classes are being held, the students went for a picnic without informing the authorities and the unfortunate incident took place. “Teachers accompany students whenever a picnic is organized by the departments of the varsity. However, no teacher from the varsity was there at the picnic spot on Saturday as students went there without our knowledge,” he said.
