VISAKHAPATNAM: The body of a youth who was drowned in the sea was washed ashore near the Kursura Museum on Thursday.

K. Das, 25, of Burma Camp, Kancharapalem, had gone for a swim at sea along with six friends on Wednesday evening. While the others returned to the shore after playing in the water for sometime, Das was confident of his swimming skills and reportedly strayed deeper and was pulled by strong currents. He was married one and a half years ago.

The three-town police are investigating the case.
