Delhi- IAS trainee drowns while saving friend

Dr Pramyesh Bansal, the station medical officer informed the media that they had made attempts to administer CPR to Dahiya before he was rushed to Vasant Kunj's Fortis Hospital.

Ashish Dahiya, a resident of Sonepat in Haryana, was attending a party with his friends from the Indian foreign and revenue services at the poolside of the Indian Foreign Services Institute in Ber Sarai on Monday evening. His family said they suspected foul play.

A woman officer accidentally fell into the pool and the other officers, including Ashish, jumped in to rescue her, police said quoting eyewitnesses.

Ashish Dahiya, a young IAS officer of J&K cadre lost his life while trying to save a woman officer from drowning in Delhi.

"He was found floating in the pool soon after", said Chinmoy Biswal, Additional DCP.

Before clearing IAS examination, Dahiya was serving as the Deputy Superintendent of Police in Himachal Pradesh.

GST rollout to benefit most States, CEA tells legislators
Under the GST regime, five-star restaurants will see an increase in tax incidence, while the levy on non-AC restaurants may come down marginally.

Ashishs family, however, said that he was a good swimmer and raised doubts over the claim that he had died due to drowning.

Dahiya (30) was selected in the Indian Administrative Services in 2016.

The police are investigating the death.

Upon enquiry, it was learnt that the victim's name was Ashish Dahiya.

The institute complex was off-limits to the media today as a team of senior police officers visited it to collect evidence like CCTV footage and record statements. The report suggests that the trainee IAS was aged 30 years. He again appeared for the UPSC with better rank and joined as an IAS officer. He inspired his wife Pragya, an MBBS, to take the exam too.

Mr. Surender added that it was only two weeks ago that Mr. Dahiya had received a gold medal for his performance in training at the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie.
