Two Telugus from the city perished in the tragedy on INS Sindhurakshak. A pall of gloom descended on the homes of Tuthika Rajesh at Pedda Gantayada and Dasari Prasad at Gopalapatnam, as the news of the worst-ever naval disaster since 1971 broke out. Dasari Prasad (33) who has a daughter was supposed to return to the city in three days as his wife is pregnant, but the fate willed it otherwise. Prasad, who was deployed in the solar department of submarines, earlier worked in INS Sindhu Dwaj here. He was transferred to Mumbai recently. Prasad’s brother DVR Murthy, who is employed in the Naval Dockyard here, rushed to Mumbai on hearing the news.

At Rajesh’s house in Pedda Gantayada, a steady stream of visitors was seen to console his parents. Rajesh is the second son of Appala Naidu and Krishna Veni. His elder brother Ravi works in Guntur. Rajesh was selected as a sailor in Indian Navy in 2002 and was promoted as submarine mechanic a little over 2 years ago. He was married to Jyothi in 2011. The couple has no children.


“My son was transferred to Mumbai recently and he was a very responsible boy,” said Appala Naidu fighting back his tears. Rajesh’s wife is in Mumbai. Rajesh called up his parents on Tuesday night around 9.30 and told his father that he was all set to sail in the submarine on a new mission.
