Belthangady , July 26, 2018: The body of 15 year old Yashwanth Sai from Bengaluru has been found in a lake at Guruvayanakere on July 26, Thursday.
The deceased boy was the son of Prem Kumar, a resident of Muniswami Katte Layout in Bengaluru. The boy was reported missing since Tuesday morning. A complaint was also lodged in this regard at a station in Bengaluru.
On Wednesday, a school bag was found near Guruvayanakere and on inspection it came to light that it belonged to Yashwanth. Tickets of travel from Bengaluru to Mangaluru and from Belthangady to Karkala were found in the bag. Though a search commenced on Wednesday itself it proved a futile exercise due to the high level of water.
The body was traced when search resumed on Thursday. Belthangady Police are investigating the case.
