A 25-year-old prospective Maharashtra police candidate was rushed to hospital after he felt uneasy on completion of the 5-km qualifying run at the police recruitment session on Thursday. The candidate was pronounced dead due to heat and exhaustion.
The man identified as Vishal Kedar was among the 1.06 lakh applicants who came to the Vikhroli recruitment centre to compete for the 2,570 vacant posts in the Maharashtra police.
After the incident, however, the Maharashtra state police are now contemplating a change in the run from 5 kms to 1.2 km and conduct the recruitment process in November and December, rather than June.

Vijay Chavan, additional commissioner of police (Local Arms), said, “Candidates have to complete the 5-km run in 35 minutes. After completing the run on time, Kedar began to feel uneasy. He was then assisted by our medical team that rushed him to the Mahatma Phule Hospital.”
Kedar was among the 42 men, who were taken to hospital after they complained of stomach ache, cramps and vomiting. Two other candidates, Ambadas Sonawane (23) from Malegaon (Nashik district) and Saiprasad Mali (22) from Virar, had also fallen unconscious during the physical test. The two died on Wednesday.
