HYDERABAD: In view of the repeated incidents of drowning of youngsters in the lake, the Pahadishareef police have decided to send recommendations to the state irrigation department to take necessary measures to prevent public visiting the Jalpally lake for swimming.

In an incident on Tuesday, a 20-year-old youth from the Old City of Hyderabad drowned in Jalpally lake when he went for swimming giving a blind-eye to the warnings of police and locals workers, to not enter the lake, as it is unsafe. Around 17 persons have drowned last summer in the lake while swimming.
Amer of Phoolbagh in Chandrayangutta had come to the Jalpally lake at around 12 pm. The patrolling personnel when saw Amer going towards lake have warned him. The workers in that area also saw Amer going towards the water and advised him not to get into it, but he did not listen, said Pahadishareef inspector V V Chalapathi.

“We have put posters in the area advising youngsters and others to not get into the Jalpally lake waters for swimming. The water has become stagnated due to the heavy rains in the last year. As there is no outflow of water, algae has accumulated,” said the inspector.
 He stressed on the need of the government taking immediate measures to prevent loss of lives in the lake. Around 20 persons have drowned since last year in the lake during swimming. The lake has free access from all the sides providing easy entry into the water, said inspector Chalapathi.
