 VIJAYAWADA : A diamond businessman from Vijayawada died in a boat mishap in the river Arkansas on the outskirts of New York, US, on Monday. The deceased has been identified as A Dinesh (27),  nephew of Kanigiri MLA K Babu Rao.

Dinesh had already booked his tickets to return to India on April 30. As a part of US tour, the couple had visited the house of Yasaswini, the Kanigiri MLA’s daughter.
