After informing the team coordinator, they went back to the pond and found his body floating. The police are yet to question Girish, who they believe is absconding.

"We have a list of students and will summon them to record their statements".

His parents accused the college of ignoring the safety of students.

One of the students informed Vishwas father, Govindappa, an autorickshaw driver, who filed a police complaint, Ramanagaram superintendent of police Ramesh B said. The parents left the college premises after the management assured them that an inquiry will determine the facts of the death.

A case of accidental death has been filed at the Thalaghattapura Police Station.
