The depth here is about three and a half feet. Everyone was swimming. He was at some distance. Suddenly he felt dizzy or had BP problems and he went inside the water. We immediately informed the pool staff about this. After this, we and the staff immediately took Vikas out of the water.

I was swimming in a three and a half feet deep area

Rajasthan University swimming pool coach Vijay Bishnoi said- Suddenly the students called me and told me that Vikash has fainted. After this, Vishal was pulled out from a depth of three and a half feet. Tried to revive him. Till then he was breathing. For this I gave him first aid. Vikash did not regain consciousness. I took Vikash in my car along with some students of the university to Sawai Mansingh Hospital. Where the doctor tried to give him first aid. Vikash could not be saved. The doctor declared him dead. Vikash’s brother Krishna Kumar said- Today my brother has died in the swimming pool of Rajasthan University. Some of his friends are saying that Vikash was standing well in three and a half feet. In such a situation, what happened suddenly that my brother died by drowning in such less water. In such a situation, there should be an impartial investigation of this matter. Only then the truth will be known.

Will get it checked if needed

Rajasthan University Vice Chancellor Professor Alpana Kateja said that Vikas Yadav’s death is a tragic incident. It is not possible to compensate for it. Vikas’ postmortem report will come tomorrow. Only after that a final decision will be taken on what to do in the future on this matter. If needed, an investigation will also be conducted on this entire matter.

Slogans raised against the Vice Chancellor
After receiving the news of Vikas Yadav’s death, Rajasthan University Vice Chancellor Professor Alpana Kateja reached the mortuary of Sawai Mansingh Hospital. Where NSUI workers raised slogans against the Vice Chancellor.

The university administration is lying

NSUI national spokesperson Ramesh Bhati said that the university administration is lying. Vikas died due to drowning in the deep well. No security personnel was present there at that time.

Bhati said that a large number of students and common people visit the swimming pool every day. Despite this, CCTV cameras were not installed keeping security in mind. This shows the great negligence of the university administration.

At the same time, despite Vikas’ death in the evening, the postmortem was not conducted today. This also raises a doubt as to why the postmortem is being delayed so much.
