The Holi festivities turned sour for an engineering student who met watery grave on the city outskirts on Monday.

After celebrating the festival with friends, Vamsi Krishna, a second year engineering student at SV College of Engineering, got into an agricultural well on Karakambadi Road to wash off the colour stains.

The thermocole he tied to his waist to stay afloat gave away following which the student drowned in the well.
