Two students from Telangana died of drowning in a lake in the US state of Missouri.

Uthej Kunta (24) and Shiva D Kelligari (25) drowned in the Lake of the Ozarks. According to information, the incident occurred at around 2.30 pm on November 26.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) water division recovered the bodies of the students, who were doing their master's at St Louis University.

The two friends went swimming on the Thanksgiving weekend.

According to US media reports, Uthej began to struggle in the water and went under. Shiva dove in to render assistance and did not resurface.

Uthej's body was recovered by MSHP Underwater Recovery Team a couple of hours after, while Shiva's body was recovered by the dive team the next day.

Shiva hailed from Tandur in Rangareddy district, while Uthej was from Hanamkonda.

Meanwhile, Telangana Minister KT Rama Rao tweeted on Monday that he had asked his office to help families in getting the mortal remains back. IANS
