Body of NRI doctor's daughter recovered from Andhra river

Hyderabad, Aug 16 : The body of a one-and-half-year-old girl, who slipped from arms of her father, an NRI doctor, and fell into the Musi river here Thursday, was recovered Friday, police said.

After frantic search by expert swimmers, the body of Maanvi was found at Marripalli bridge in Hayatnagar 'mandal' of neighbouring Ranga Reddy district.

The girl was washed away in the swirling water Thursday afternoon after she slipped from the arms of her father, Megha Shyam Reddy, a doctor based in Britain.

Shyam Reddy was showing her the river from a bridge at Nagole when she fell down and was washed away. His son, 10-year-old Pramek Reddy, was standing a few feet away.

The NRI doctor told police that he was holding the toddler in his arms and showing the flowing water when she suddenly moved and slipped.

The police had called expert swimmers to trace the child. The fire service personnel and municipal workers also joined the efforts, which were hampered by thick grass, dirt and thorny bushes. Even the boats of tourism departments were used for the search operation but the child could not be traced till late Thursday.

The rescue workers resumed the search Friday morning and found the body.
