The mortal remains of Vizag-based software engineer Avinash Kuna (32), who drowned in Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey, USA, on June 1, reached the city by a late-night flight from Mumbai on Friday.

After completion of the governmental formalities in the US, the body was sent to Delhi and from there it was shifted to Visakhapatnam airport. The body of Avinash was handed over to his father K. Venkata Rao.

The tragic incident had taken place two days after the deceased's birthday on May 28. Teary-eyed relatives received the body at Visakhapatnam airport. Sources in the family said that the funeral would be held on Saturday.

Avinash, along with seven of his friends, had gone to the lake on June 1 for a boating trip. He hired a pontoon boat for a ride and jumped into the lake for a swim but was potentially caught in the underwater weed and drowned.

Avinash was the only son of K. Janardhanamma and K. Venkateswara Rao, of Visakhapatnam Steel Plant.
