Two Indian students drowned while hiking with a group of friends at a popular tourist spot in Scotland. The bodies of the two men were recovered from the water near the Linn of Tummel on Wednesday night by rescue personnel.
According to a report, the two men were with four other friends from the country, who were all pursuing a Master's degree at the University of Dundee.
"On Wednesday night, Jitendranath Karuturi, 26, and Chanhakya Bolisetti, 22, were washed away at Linn of Tummel, which is located north of Pitlochry. There don't seem to be any strange circumstances surrounding the fatalities," a police official reportedly said.
Both students were studying master's degrees in data science and engineering, reported the Daily Record. Jitendranath had studied in the US before and worked at Taza Indian Buffet restaurant, and Chanhakya had studied in Hyderabad, the report added.
An official from the Indian High Commission in London said that the bodies of the two students were found downstream.
"The families of both students have been contacted by the Indian Consulate General, and a consular representative has met a student who resides in the UK. Dundee University has promised to help in every way," an official said.
The post mortem is set to be carried out on Friday, the report said. The process of returning the bodies to India will be carried out after that, the official said.
"This has been a tragic accident which has shocked us all, and our thoughts are with the families and friends of the students. We have been providing support to those families and friends at this extremely difficult time," University of Dundee spokesperson told the Courier.
