In a distressing incident, an Indian-origin medico, who was pursuing his MBBS at the Orenburg State Medical College in Russia, drowned at a lake in Stavropol on Saturday after he celebrated his birthday with his companions.

The medico identified as Gujja Naveen Kumar was reported to be hailing from Bhongir town in Telangana.

The police said that Naveen and six other friends had visited the lake and celebrated his birthday before they decided to swim in the water. However, Naveen ended up drowning and his body was later fished out of the water after a search operation.

According to media reports, in 2012 Naveen went to Russia to pursue MBBS and only had six months left before he accomplished his course and returned to India.

It was as well reported that Naveen could swim but a postmortem had suggested that he had died of a cardiac arrest. Visuals showed his family back home breaking down when they heard the news, unable to cope with his death.

Arrangements have now been made for his mortal remains to return to the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) at Hyderabad and then to his native town.
