Moreover, the administration officials said that part of the pool where the suction drain works has to be different from the "main part of the pool". However, TK Peer, Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Mahagun Moderne Society told TOI, "We have taken NOC for the entire swimming pool. Nothing about a separate NOC was told that time. All guidelines were followed." Moreover, the residents said that there was no covering to keep the suction drain covered.
"The holes of the suction drain pipe were left open and since the pump for the movement of water was on, the child's arm got stuck into the same and he was drowned," said a Mahagun resident. City magistrate also said that the part of the pool where the inflow and outflow of the water goes on with the pump has to be placed "separately".
The design of the swimming pool is also under scanner since it has certain sharp edges on the inner wall of the boundary. There are also decorational trees in separate enclosures made inside the swimming pool, which can likely obstruct a guard's vision.
The builders have claimed that there were as many as five people present on the spot when the incident occurred including two lifeguards, two guards and a coach. City magistrate Bachu Singh said that their inquiry team however, did not find the same personnel during the inspection. The swimming pool has a separate section for kids which is segragated from the main pool with a net. However, the part of the pool, where the child drowned is meant to be used only for adults.
"We have given the contract for designing and maintanence for the pool to another company. They are professionals and operate in the entire NCR region. We understand it is a very unfortunate incident, but it is important to emphasise that guardians must ensure that no child ventures into such areas alone," Peer said.
