Cremation would take place on Sunday morning.

The assistant Professor was believed to have drowned in the sea while bathing in a beach near Diu on Thursday afternoon during an outing after the completion of a study tour in a model village in Gujarat. Sources told Assam Times that Kashyap was along 17 other teachers and students who left for Gujarat for an educational tour last week.
