Bodies of NCC cadets flown to Delhi
Kochi, Dec 27 (PTI) The bodies of five NCC cadets, who drowned in Periyar River near here, were airlifted to Delhi this morning by an IAF aircraft.
The bodies were taken to Delhi by five NCC officials from the Naval airport here.
Defence sources said floral tributes were paid to the departed on behalf of Defence Minister A K Antony, Kerala Chief Minister Oomen Chandy, Flag Officer Commanding-in-Chief Southern Naval Command Vice Admiral Satish Soni and NCC Director General Lt Gen P S Bhalla.
The students were part of the National Trekking Camp of the National Cadets Corps at Malayatoor, about 52 km from here when the tragedy struck them yesterday. While two boys first slipped into the waters as they were clicking photographs of the picturesque spot, the three others jumped to help them.
