Lucknow: A student was found dead under mysterious circumstances near a swimming pool in the college campus here and police have taken four persons, including two students, into custody for questioning.

Faiz Alam, who was learning cricket at Guru Govind Singh Sports College, was found dead yesterday near the campus swimming pool.

His mother, who suspected a foul play as her son did not know swimming, lodged an FIR with Gudamba police in which she named two other students of the college.

The two students besides two guards of the college were taken into custody for questioning, Superintendent of Police Abdul Hamid said.

The deceased's post mortem report, however, confirmed drowning as cause of the death, he said, adding further investigation is on.

Meanwhile, the college administration ruled out ragging saying neither had there been any complaint in this regard in the past nor the students named in the FIR are seniors of the deceased.
