According to reports, Shravan came from Hyderabad by bus and rented a bike to tour around Chikkamagalur. On Monday, along with friends, Shravan visited Hebbe waterfalls on a bike. Due to rains in recent times, there was a heavy flow at Hebbe waterfalls and rocks around the area were too slippery. Shravan accidentally slipped into the waterfall, and he was rescued with the help of locals. When he was brought out from the waterfall, Shravan was reportedly alive, and he was rushed to the nearby hospital. However, he was declared dead at the hospital.

“The friends' group did not know how to swim, and they still entered the water. There was a high flow of water,” a senior police officer told news agency PTI.
