Mangalore, Jul 20: In yet another water tragedy three students from Tamil Nadu met watery grave at Panambur beach here on Friday July 20 morning.

The drowned have been identified as Santhosh, Sudesh and Suresh, students of Sona College from Salem.  They had come on an educational trip to the city along with 42 of their companions and 2 lecturers.  Among them 9 were women.

The entire group had come to Panambur beach in the morning.  Despite the sea was rough, some students had got into the sea to swim ignoring the warnings by the locals.  Warning signals have even been put on various boards along the beach.  But most of the tourists ignore this to their own peril, say locals.

Coast Guards have already launched massive search operation to fish out the drowned.  Panambur police have registered a case in this regard.

    Now only govt realised the problem in this area... the government  told that they incresed the protection in that area... but the price was the death of the three students...

    I hope and pray they are still alive in any of the other places/shores. I heared that all those 3 guys know swimming. God will definitely help them to be alive. We also pray for their presence. In future, that place(panambur beach) should be fully restricted and protected by the costal guards to achieve zero accidents.

    Hope the government should take the appropriate actions. Welldone Coast Guards for their effort for searching those 3 guys.

    When time comes we also have to leave this beautiful world.But this type of leaving ...very heart breaking...not for the people who died...but they left over the near & dear ones... May God give them courage and mental strength to over come from this trauma.

    Coast Guard can do little if people inform them late. How much time is required for one to die in this horrible sea..Still Indian Coast Guard responded swiftly. Their brave soldiers with geminies were there in action within no time... risking their life..a commendable work without any recognision...

    Welldone Coast Guard.. we salute you from our heart. An eye witness of the incident
