Cuttack, Dec 16:
Fire brigade personnel on Monday afternoon fished out the body of Kartik Swain, a native of Polsara in Ganjam district who was drowned in river Mahanadi here on Sunday.
Efforts are on to trace out the body of the other man who drowned, Sukuta Swain (21) of Nayagarh, fire brigade sources said.
It may be mentioned that eight people from the Sikhar Chandi area of Bhubaneswar had gone for a picnic to the Mahanadi patha from Kaliaboda on a boat around noon on Sunday. While on their return, they noticed a leakage in the boat. Out of panic, all of them jumped into the river.
While six of them managed to swim to the river bank, Sukuta and Kartik were swept away.
