The two persons have been identified as Sharanappa (35), a native of Itagi, Vijaypura, and Nagaraj H S (18), a resident of Jokatte here.

    Excellebt service to the Pubic by the team of LIFE GUARDS. As suggestions have come forward people should be discouraged and prevented from from going into the sea as IT IS NOT SAFE. However the Government have placed life guards for a purpose and these Life Guards have rendered excellent service.

    The people or The Corporation should provide suitable awards to the Life Guards while rendering such good service sometimes at the risks of their own lives.
