Guide:In a sad incident, a Telugu techie working for Infosys in the US drowned along with his three-year old son in a swimming pool in his apartment complex

Hyderabad: A Telugu techie working for Infosys in the US drowned along with his three-year-old son in a swimming pool at his apartment in Detroit on Tuesday.

Nagaraju Surepalli, 31, of Guntur and his son Ananth Sai (3) were found dead in the swimming pool. A pal of gloom descended on Nagaraju's home in Nehru Nagar area in Guntur town. His parents Sivalingaiah Surepalli and Subhanamma were inconsolable. His wife Himabindu, a native of neighbouring Prakasam district has sought the help of Nagaraju's colleagues and the Telugu Association leaders in bringing the bodies to Guntur.

Nagaraju worked and lived in Michigan on deputation for a project work. He moved to the US in 2014 and Himabindu and Ananth Sai joined him the next year. Nagaraju and Bindu got married in 2012. He had been working in Infosys, Bangalore for many years. He moved to Bangalore after completing his B.Tech in 2006.

According to information received by the family members here, Ananth Sai was playing on a tricycle and suddenly fell in the swimming pool. Nagaraju jumped into the pool to rescue his son but, he too drowned. The swimming pool is said to be of about five feet deep but, Nagaraju did not know swimming, it is reported.

Local media reports said a couple noticed the two bodies floating in the pool, when they walked into the clubhouse.

Nagaraju's colleagues and friends have started crowdfunding to organise funds to send the mortal remains of the father and son to their native place. The fund required is 1,50,000 US Dollars. A relative of Nagaraju told Mirror that the mortal remains of the two are expected to be flown to Guntur on June 6.

Friends described Nagaraju in the crowdfunding appeal as "The most jovial, honest, friendly person you would ever meet and always smiling."
