Two students from a Gujarat college drowned at the Candolim beach in Goa in the wee hours of Thursday.

Both of them were Crafting Creative Communication (CCC) students at MICA.  The students were on a five-day trip to Goa as part of their field trip.

The team of six students visited the Candolim beach around 3 am on Thursday.

They had left the institute on September 4 and were scheduled to return on September 9.

“Tragic Loss for the entire MICA Community. It is with great sorrow that we share with you the news of the sad demise of two of MICA’s one-year CCC (Crafting Creative Communication) Program students – Ms. Anuja Susan Paul & Mr. Gurram Chenchu Sai Jnaneswar. They were part of the CCC Field Study Trip in Goa along with the entire CCC batch. In the morning, a group of six students decided to go to Candolim beach. Unfortunately, two of them drowned and lost their lives.

MICA’s Leadership Team is in touch with their families and our thoughts and prayers are with them and the two departed souls.
