In a shocking development, a young scientist hailing from Odisha has been drowned to death in his village’s pond. The scientist was working for the reputed space organization of India, ISRO. The incident happened in Odisha’s Bargarh district.
The deceased has been identified as Nihar Ranjan Pradhan. He was working for the Vikram Sarabhai Space Center. As per reports, the 27-year-old scientist had come to his native village last Saturday on a 15-day leave. He went to the village pond to take a bath on Monday at noon. However, he slipped while bathing and went deep into the water as he didn’t know how to swim.
Some of the villagers rushed to his rescue and took him to the nearby hospital immediately. However, the doctors declared him brought dead. “Nihar was the pride of our area. He was a very modest person. His untimely death is an irreparable loss for the country and the area,” said Jharapali Sarpanch Gyana Ranjan Bhoi.
