The deceased is Vijith Suvarna (30), son of Nagesh Suvarna and Meenakshi, residents of near Manipura Mutt.  It is learnt, Vijith did not know swimming and therefore was sitting on the concrete slab.

Vijith who was a member of the local Billawa Sangha’s Chende team was also the President  of the youth wing of the Sri Narayana Guru Dharmapalana Sangha of Manipura.
