Police so far does not know exact reason behind the incident and investigation is underway in this regard. Kamla Nagar police said that S R Singh, 67, was retired Deputy Director of Agriculture Department and was living in Nehru Nagar. He used to go for morning walk. On Friday morning, his body was seen floating in the pond.

Police said that autopsy report indicated that he died of drowning but so far it is not clear that how he met the watery grave as there is no eye-witness of the incident. It is being fathomed that he may have slipped into the pond and got drowned.  But so far police does not know the exact reason of his death and are probing the matter from all angles.
