Two men drowned in a swimming pool in a private complex in Delhi's Burari on Sunday night. The two were taken to Kapil Multi Speciality hospital where they were declared dead and the police was informed.
The men have been identified as Amit (23) and Neeraj (24) and were residents of Tomar Colony. Amit used to work as a water purifier mechanic while Neeraj was a student of School of Open Learning.
According to the official, the two had consumed alcohol before they went for swimming in the pool near Joseph Merry School, Nathupura, Burari at around 8 pm on Sunday.
Investigations revealed that the complex was under construction and was not fully open to the public. There were no life jackets, drain cover, pool alarm or fencing around the pool.
Vikram Ujjainwal, who had taken the pool premises on lease, and Ramesh, the caretaker have been arrested in the case.
A man from the site said that they may have not been able to assess the depth and hence drowned. He further said that even he tried to swim a few days ago and got injured because of some cut glass pieces inside the pool water.
