Despite unsuccessful attempts by local divers to locate the phone, the food inspector, Mr. Vishwas, took matters into his own hands.

He personally funded the use of a diesel pump, which was brought in to drain water from the dam, as stated in a video statement attributed to him and reported in the Indian media.

In a three-day operation that involved pumping millions of liters of water out of the dam, Rajesh Vishwas’s lost phone was finally recovered.
