He was rushed to Fortis Hospital where he was declared brought dead, police said.

The police said Dahiya along with some friends from the Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and the Indian Revenue Service (IRS) had organised the poolside party at the Foreign Service Institute (FSI) on Monday night.

During the party, they made a decision to swim in the pool at the club. His family said they suspected foul play.

"Many young officers, including Dahiya, attempted to rescue her", a police official said.

"The men pulled the woman out of the water, but as the drama came to end, the woman realised Dahiya was no where to be seen. Soon, he was discovered floating", the officer said.

A medical officer was called but attempts to revive him with CPR before he was taken to hospital did not help.
