VISAKHAPATNAM: Three members of a family met with a watery grave in a boat tragedy in the Sileru river.

Pujari Sukhra, 35, his wife Icchabati, 30, and son Sonadhar, 4, of Buradakota village of Y. Ramavaram village in East Godavari district, went to their relatives’ house at Gilla Madugu village on Monday.

While returning, Pujari, who was manning the boat himself, was reportedly in an inebriated condition and perhaps lost control of the boat leading to its capsize. Their bodies were washed ashore on Tuesday.
