Fear factor Khatron ke Khiladi turned really dangerous in Bhopal when a 22-year-old participant fainted under water during the thrill-packed game. He is now struggling for life in a hospital, police said on Monday.

Anzar, a resident of Sagar, who had come to Indore with his friends on a private visit, went to participate in the reality show, organised by the Candid Marketing Co for Colors TV channel at Treasure Island, late on Saturday evening.

"Participants were supposed to remain under water in a tank (for few seconds). Anzar also did the same but he fell unconscious. When he did not come out for about 10 minutes, his friends raised an alarm," police officer DS Baghel told IANS.

"The organisers instead of rescuing him fled the scene. Later the people witnessing the show brought him out of the tank and rushed him to a nearby private nursing home," Baghel said

The police have registered a case against Kunal, Ravi and Ajay of the Candid Marketing.

However, according to Baghel, Kunal has informed the police that no such incident occurred in their presence. The police are investigating the case.

Anzar whose lungs were filled with water is critical, said Baghel.
