Man drowns in Dhankot canal

Gurugram, July 20

A 24-year-old employee of Ecogreen company, who had gone with his four friends for a dip in Dhankot canal, drowned and died. The police along with a team of divers reached the spot and recovered victim Ajay’s body after an hour of search.

Yesterday, the five friends decided to go to the canal for a swim. One of them Ajay (24), a native Ghaziabad, slipped and drifted to deeper waters. Seeing Ajay gasping for breath, his four friends Sandeep, Karan, Mukesh and Karamveer shouted for help, but nobody heard them and not being trained swimmers, they finally called the police and his family.

It took half-an-hour when the rescue team reached the spot and by that time the body of Ajay had disappeared. After an hour of search, the body was fished out. “The man’s family has not filed a complaint yet. We handed over the body to the kin after postmortem. His father Ramniwas did not raise any doubt or suspicion,” said Inspector Pankaj Kumar. — OC
