Mahabalipuram (Tamil Nadu): Two students from Andhra Pradesh, who were part of a group of nine students on a trip to Mahabalipuram beach in Tamil Nadu, drowned in the sea, police said.

While four students have been rescued, a search is ongoing for the other three who went missing, police reported on Sunday.

According to Mahabalipuram Police officials, "A group of students from Andhra Pradesh were on a trip to Mahabalipuram. They were playing and bathing in the sea when rough waves dragged them inside."

Panic-stricken students screamed for assistance, and upon hearing them, locals and police rushed to rescue four of them.

"Four students have been rescued. Two have drowned while three students are missing, and a search is ongoing," they said.

Last month, three teenage boys died after drowning in the Yamuna River in Delhi. In January, a 24-year-old boy lost his life by drowning in the sea at Chal beach in Kannur district's Azhikode in Kerala.
