“The incident took place around 9.30 pm. Eyewitnesses said the two students were at the deep end of the pool when they drowned. There were life-jackets kept around the pool, but the two students could not be saved,” the officer said.
Police said the bodies have been sent for post-mortem examination to a hospital in Delhi. Police said they were speaking to others present at the scene to find out what exactly happened. The club authorities, when contacted, said a life-guard was present by the poolside but by the time he became aware of the situation and reacted, it was too late. They added that the students were “at the deep end and had probably not taken adequate precautions”.
