Two 15-year-old students from Visakhapatnam went missing in the Janjhavati near Rayagada on Saturday. The Rayagada police said they were part of a group of three students who had come to visit Majhighariani temple in Rayagada. The missing students were identified as P. Uday and V. Tirumala Rao.

With the river flowing at a distance of just 200 metres from the temple, the students decided to take a bath in it before visiting the temple.

The third member of the group N. Kartik was on the banks of the river guarding their dresses and other belongings when the incident took place. Bodies of the victims could not be traced till reports last came in.
