MUMBAI: A 10-year-old boy died after entering the swimming pool of an international school located in Borivli (west) on Saturday evening. The boy, Sahil Bhandary, and one of his friends had scaled the compound wall to enter the school premises looking for a cricket ball.

A watchman of the school, Ajay Pawar (49, has been arrested for 'negligence while on duty'.

The boy, who lives near the school, was playing cricket with his friends at a playground in the area when the ball entered the school premise. According to the kids, Bhandary and one of their friends climbed a tree near the school compound wall and jumped inside. The school is shut for vacations.

Bhandary studied in Class IV in a sister concern of the same school housed on the same premises.

Senior inspector Subhash Chavan of MHB Colony police station said, "Bhandary got into the pool to fetch the ball. But the boy could not swim and soon started drowning. That's when his companion rushed to the gate and alerted the watchman who informed others and rushed Bhandary to a hospital where he was declared dead."

Inspector Chavan said they will also initiate action against the school management for negligence shown in not posting a guard at the pool. The school, however, said that the guard at the swimming pool had left since it was Saturday and it is vacation time.

The watchman will be produced in court on Monday.
