BENGALURU: Govind told Express that Vishwas had left home on Saturday morning to attend the NCC camp. At night, Vishwas had called his mother,  Lakshmi, and informed her that he would return on Sunday evening.On Sunday afternoon, one of the cadets who was also a group leader called Govind from Vishwas’s phone and informed him about the incident. “When I rushed to the spot, his body had been fished out of the pond,’’ said Govind. Vishwas’ friends refused to speak about the incident, claiming that they had been instructed by Rajesh not to speak to anyone about the incident.


Ambulance driver, hospital staff extorted money 
Police had called a private ambulance to shift Vishwas’ body to Rajarajeshwarinagar Hospital. Govind alleged that the driver of the ambulance demanded `3,500. “When I paid `2000, he told the hospital staff to delay the postmortem. I waited more than 24 hours to receive the body. There is an understanding between the hospital staff and private ambulance drivers to extort money. Why did police use private ambulance to shift the body?” Govind asked.  Dr Govindaraju, medical superintendent of the hospital, was not available for comment.
