    My condolence to the family of the deceased. Often times it can be fatal when swimmers dive they get trauma injury to the head & black out & sink. I wonder if an autopsy will be done to find out .

    Innalillahay Wainnaillahay Rajeoun Its absolutely mandatory for performance of Autopsy or Postmortem since a Non-DU Student succumbed in the DU Swimming Pool under such circumstances! The dire consequences of burial of such death ignoring the formalities involved can have serious implications for the relevant DU Officials. Hence, the competent DU authorities must strictly monitor this entire matter minutely by involving physically the AIUB authorities effective Pre Burial Phase up to the Post burial stage, to arrive at an amicable conclusion!!!
