However, none of them noticed the boy drowning and he was only seen by a female resident of the apartment who then raised alarm.

It has also come to light that Hemanth’s name was entered in the apartment’s entry registry as the brother of Akhilesh, living in the apartment. Ravi, the security supervisor said, “The security guards did not stop Hemanth, as Akhilesh told them that the former is his brother. It is difficult to remember the children, as there are hundreds here. They came at 4.30 pm and the incident happened at 4.50 pm.” Parents of both the boys have told police that they were unaware of boys going for a swim.
