Kundapur, Jun 19: Two students from Tiptur, who were visiting Kundapur for a relative's wedding, ventured into the sea on Wednesday, June 19 evening. One of the students went missing, while the other was rescued by locals.

Yogesh (23), a resident of Tiptur, was swept away by the sea and is currently missing. His friend, Sandeep, was saved by local residents.

Yogesh and Sandeep had come to Kundapur for a family wedding. On Wednesday evening, they were walking along the beach near Daras Mane in the Bijadi Gram Panchayat area. Attracted by the waves, they decided to enter the sea. However, the powerful waves soon overwhelmed them. While Yogesh was being swept away, Sandeep tried to save him but was also caught in the strong currents. Sandeep's cries for help alerted the locals, who managed to rescue him. Unfortunately, by the time help arrived, Yogesh had already submerged and gone missing.

Kundapur police and coastal guard personnel have launched a search operation to locate the missing student. It has been reported that both students were pursuing ITI studies in Tiptur.
