A tragic incident occurred on Monday when a 30-year-old IAS trainee drowned in a swimming pool while trying to save a friend from drowning at the Foreign Service Institute in South Delhi’s Ber Sarai around midnight, Hindustan Times reported quoting the Delhi Police. The man, identified as Ashish Dahiya was an IAS trainer of the batch of 2016 and was a native of Haryana’s Sonepat. According to the report, Dahiya and his friends from the IFS and the IRS had gathered for a poolside party at the Institute – the Foreign Service Institute is run by the Ministry of External Affairs.

Additional DCP of South Delhi, Chinmoy Biswal informed the Hindustan Times that the eyewitnesses had revealed that a woman trainee had slipped into the pool, following which numerous young trainee officers had tried to rescue her by jumping into the pool. Although the woman was successfully pulled out to safety, it was then noticed that Ashish was missing. He was then found floating in the water soon after. By the time he was pulled out of the water it was too late to save him.

Dr Pramyesh Bansal, the station medical officer informed the media that they had made attempts to administer CPR to Dahiya before he was rushed to Vasant Kunj’s Fortis Hospital. Dahiya was declared dead at 12:50 am. Dr Bansal also informed reporters that the people present at the party had consumed alcohol. According to the report, Dahiya’s body has been sent to the AIIMS for a post-mortem and his family has been informed about his death. Meanwhile, a team of senior officers was reportedly present at the scene of the incident for the collection of evidence and recording to statements of the eyewitnesses. Dahiya’s family meanwhile said that they suspect foul play. Speaking IANS, Dahiya’s father Narender Singh said, “My son has swum five to eight kilometres in the Bhakra Nangal Dam in Himachal Pradesh during his police training”.

    It is just so sad, the loss of a promising Revenue Collector. May his soul rest in peace. Now who is going to collect Revenue ?, this is a great loss to the Nation & others. It so happens, that the other day (2-3 days) earlier, our guru had some strange visions, after breaking silence from meditation he had uttered - DAHI DAHIYA. DAHI is known as curd in English. Maybe it was just a sign, which some of the Gurus do notice. I just wish if we could alert the media, and avoid dangers to people. It had happened it the past. However, I am disgusted by the Indian media doing COPY & PASTE jobs, unnecessarily publishing certain stories (some happen to be too old) from the international media, about films & space. God Bless !!
