Hotel Savera drowning incident: M.Anand succumbs

 As I had feared, one more person has died of injuries sustained in the Hotel Savera stage collapse-drowning incident. PTI reports that the victim is M.Anand. 

This is the PTI report:  A 21-year-old youth today succumbed to the injuries suffered during the collapse of a dais at a city hotel for the New Year-eve party, taking the toll to two, even as the President of the hotel was arrested today.

Police said M Anand, a third-year Engineering student, had been admitted to a hospital here after he was injured during the dais collapse at Savera hotel. He succumbed to the
injuries today.

The stage erected over a swimming pool crashed as hundreds of revellers were dancing on it, killing a 24-year-old software engineer, Sumit Agnihotri, hailing from Uttar Pradesh.

President of the Savera Group of Hotels B V S Reddy was arrested today in connection with the collapse. He was produced before a magistrate court here which granted him
bail.

Three others–hotel General Manager Antony Michael, Narendra Singh, the contractor who had erected the dais, and Singh’s Manager Ravi — have already been arrested in
connection with the mishap.

The hotel had collected Rs 3,000 per head from the revellers for the New Year bash.
