A trainee IAS officer allegedly drowned in a swimming pool while trying to save a lady colleague during a party at an institute run by the ministry of external affairs late last night, police said. Suspecting foul play, the family has demanded a CBI probe into the incident if Delhi Police fails to get any breakthrough soon.
The deceased, Ashish Dahiya, was a resident of Sonipat, Haryana and was attending a pool side party with friends rom the Indian foreign and revenue services, they added.
As per the statements of eye witnesses, the lady officer probably had an accidental slip into the pool after which many young officers including Ashish Dahiya rushed to her help and attempted rescuing her.
His body was found floating in the pool a few minutes past midnight.
A medical officer was called and there were attempts at reviving him with CPR before he was taken to hospital, where he was declared dead around 1 am.
