Police said that statements of eye witnesses reveal that while swimming, a lady officer probably had an accidental slip into the pool and many young officers, including the deceased, attempted rescuing her. The deceased officer has been identified as Ashish Dahiya, a resident of Sonepat in Haryana, who was placed in the Jammu and Kashmir cadre after clearing the UPSC examinations in 2016. Later, his body was found floating in the pool. However, when the attempts to save him failed, he was rushed to the Fortis Hospital where he was declared brought dead. "He was such a good swimmer". His uncle Kuldeep said that he was an ace swimmer and had crossed a five kilometre stretch across Bhakra Nangal dam.

Policeman-turned-bureaucrat, Dahiya was to leave for J&K soon for his first posting as an IAS officer.

Mr Dahiya was Deputy Superintendent of Police in Himachal Pradesh when he sat for his civil services exam in 2015 and was selected for the IAS. The report suggests that the trainee IAS was aged 30 years. A family member said he was to join his service in Srinagar on Wednesday as an assistant collector. His wife Pragya is a doctor. He had served there for three years, during which he was posted in the border areas as well. "We are getting a medical board to conduct the post-mortem".

Spot evidence suggested that the revelers had been consuming alcohol.
