JK cadre IAS officer drowns in New Delhi pool

Police are recording statements to ascertain the cause of the accident.A report in NDTV has said that the officer's family has demanded an independent investigation claiming that Dahiya was a good swimmer.

A trainee Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer was on Monday late night found dead in the training institute's swimming pool situated in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).

A woman officer accidentally fell into the pool and the other officers, including Ashish, jumped in to rescue her, police said quoting eyewitnesses.

Police, however, confirmed that there were no CCTV cameras in the pool area of the institute.

The family alleged the CCTV at the club of the institute was not functional when the tragedy took place.

"A preliminary probe revealed there were 20-25 officers, mostly from the IFS and IRS, and they had consumed alcohol", said a senior police officer. "We received a call at 12.50am and got details from people who were there at the spot".

Police are probing if there was a brawl at the party.

While he was posted as a Deputy Superintendent of Police in Himachal Pradesh, he had even won a gold medal in swimming, Kudeep told PTI.

Police officers had earlier mistakenly described the dead man as a trainee IAS officer.

Ashish Dahiya, the son of a Haryana government official, rose through the ranks because of sheer determination, recall his family members.

"Now there is an instructor who comes from 6 to 8 a.m. every day".

A medical officer was called but attempts to revive him with CPR before he was taken to hospital did not help.
