A 30-year-old rookie IAS officer drowned allegedly while rescuing a woman colleague who had accidentally fallen into a swimming pool at the Foreign Service Institute in Ber Sarai here today.

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

The police said Dahiya along with some friends from the Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and the Indian Revenue Service (IRS) had organised the poolside party at the Foreign Service Institute (FSI) on Monday night.

During the pool side party in late evening hours, the party goers made a decision to go for a swim in the pool located at the club.

Dahiya, a native of Sonipat in neighbouring Haryana, was rushed to Fortis Hospital where he was declared brought dead at 12.50am.

Dahiya's family reached Delhi this afternoon and hinted at foul play.

"The men pulled the woman out of the water, but as the drama came to end, the woman realised Dahiya was no where to be seen".

"The lady officer was safely pulled out but Ashish went missing..."

The police are investigating the death. "He had attended the IAS training institute in Mussoorie for a year and was to join as a field trainee in Srinagar on May 1", said Surender Dahiya, his cousin. "Later, he was found floating in the pool", the officer said. Kuldeep, who said he was an ace swimmer, found it hard to believe that Dahiya could have drowned. Police were then called to the spot, following which the family was informed.

According to the police, they may have drunken. Post mortem examination reports have cleared death by drowning. 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.
