    "Rajesh Kumar Sah who hailed from Bokaro, and four others fainted during the 10 km run test at JAP Ground in Sidgora area. They were taken to the M G M Hospital here," they said.

    Superintendent of Police (City) Prabhat Kumar said the candidates were required to run 10 km in one hour. Sah fell on the ground in his 23rd or 24th lap of the run. He was immediately taken to hospital in an ambulance deputed at the venue.

    He, however, died during the course of treatment there, Kumar said. Dehydration could be a possible reason for his illness but the exact reason of Sah's death could be known only after post-mortem examination.

    The Officer-in-charge of Sidgora police station, Ashok Kumar, said Sah was working in Delhi and went to the venue straightway after reaching here this morning.

    The parents of the deceased have been informed. The IRB recruitment process began on July 2 and is scheduled to continue till July 21.
