The bodies of two 17-year-old students who drowned in the seas off Kudawella in Tangalle were washed ashore today.

Tangalle police said the bodies were washed ashore 25 hours after they drowned.

They said the victims Janith Ishan Lakshitha and Muditha Dilshan had gone for a swim with another friend to celebrate their success at the GCE Ordinary Level Examination.

The remains were sent to the Judicial Medical Officer of the Hambantota hospital for further investigations.

A third child who had accompanied the unfortunate children had managed to escape the tragedy.

The relatives of the children had lodged a complaint with the police as they did not return home last afternoon. (Ariyadasa Kodithuwakku and Chandrasena Gamage)
