A 25-year-old Indian graduate student at the Blekinge Institute of Technology who was reported missing in late January, has been found dead in Ronneby harbour.

The body was found in the watery grave two weeks ago, but the identification process was completed only on Friday, according to the local Blekinge Läns Tidning daily.

Blekinge police have confirmed that they don't suspect any crime in connection with the disappearance of Dheeraj Reddy Donthi.

Donthi's relatives in India received confirmation of his death on Friday.

The 25-year-old was last seen when spending an evening with friends at home on January 26th. He left the flat at around 9.30pm telling his roommates he was heading over to the university.

Since then no one had heard anything from him and his disappearance was reported to the police around a week after he went missing.

The circumstances surrounding Donthi's death remain unclear with friends reporting at the time of disappearance that he appeared happy in Sweden.

"He didn't have any problems that anyone knew of. Things seemed to be going really well," Krishna Paruchuri, a friend of Donthi's, told The Local at the time.

Donthi's body was found by walkers at the mouth of a river flowing into Ronneby harbour on April 1st.

The ‘fairytale' boarding school nestled in a Swedish village

The words ‘boarding' and ‘school' often summon images of strict teachers, drab dormitories and downcast children. That image couldn't be further from reality at Sigtunaskolan Humanistiska Läroverket (SSHL), where boarders describe the ‘fairytale' school as a home away from home.
