Warangal: Braving the heavy water flow, police officials retrieved the body of the drowned youth from the Jampana Vagu at Medaram in Mulugu district on Sunday.

According to the police, the deceased, Rohit Lal, 21, a resident of Malakpet in Hyderabad, came to Medaram to visit Sammakka-Saralamma Jatara along with his friend on Saturday.
