There is still no trace of the two software engineers from the district who boarded the ill-fated S11 coach of the Tamil Nadu Express.
Relatives of Manda Raju of Venkatapuram village in Duggondi mandal and Madarapu Avinash of Karimabad are in Nellore searching for the two techies hoping that at least they will get something belonging to their kin in the heaps of ash so that they could take it home and perform the last rites.
Raju was working as a project operator in Champak company. His parents gave Raju for adoption to Manda Sambaiah at a young age.
According to a source, Raju’s relatives are returning to the village as all their efforts to find him proved futile. Avinash was an employee of Cognizant. His father Gourishankar is an assistant registrar in SDLCE of Kakatiya University. Avinash is the only son of Gourishankar.
