Fourteen computer science students of a Pune college, including twin sisters, drowned when they ventured into a treacherous sea off the Murud beach ignoring warnings during a college picnic on Monday (1st).

The Indian Coast Guard has launched a search operation. The search for the missing students is on with help from locals.

Among the victims are at least four girl students. Four girls were successfully rescued while another six have been rushed to nearby hospitals. The cause of the massive tragedy is still not clear.

The students were part of a group of more than 130 from Maharashtra Cosmopolitan Education Society's Abeda Inamdar College and had come to the picturesque Murud beach for a picnic.
