NEW DELHI: A 25-year-old man drowned in a swimming pool at a farmhouse in south Delhi’s Maidan Garhi area on Tuesday. A case was registered in this regard.
Police said that they received information around 9.30 am from Safdarjung Hospital about the man, Shubham, being brought dead to the hospital. Further inquiry revealed that the deceased was a native of Uttarakhand. He was working as a waiter in a hotel and was living at a rented accommodation in Mahipalpur.
A police officer said that the incident took place during a get-together that was organised inside the farmhouse. “Shubham and his colleagues had organised a get-together at the farmhouse. There was a swimming pool in the backyard of the farmhouse and he and his friends had entered the pool,” the officer said.
Deputy commissioner of police (South) Benita Mary Jaiker said that after some time, his friends came out of the pool but found that Shubham was missing. During the search, they discovered that he had drowned.
The 25-year-old victim was admitted to a hospital in south Delhi by his friends where the doctor declared him brought dead. “The deceased did not know how to swim,” the officer said.
During the inspection, police found negligence on the part of the farmhouse owner. “There was no life-saving equipment near the swimming pool. How did he then allow for such a get-together,” the officer wondered.
A case under Section 304A (causing death by negligence) of the Indian Penal Code has been registered against the owner of the farmhouse. Further investigation is underway.
