Fatehveer Singh, a two-year-old boy who fell into a 150-foot narrow abandoned borewell in a village in Punjab’s Sangrur district over 24 hours ago, on June 7, 2019. Efforts were underway on Friday to rescue the child. The child is believed to be stuck at a depth of 110 feet in the borewell that has a nine-inch diameter.

There is no official confirmation about the health of the child, Fatehveer Singh.

“Why was he taken to the hospital when he is no more,” Rohi Singh, child’s grandfather, told reporters on the spot.

He claimed that the body of the child had grievous wounds. “He was pulled out (of the borewell) by using strings.”

Sukhminder Singh, father of Fatehveer, requested people to maintain peace.

The rescued child was admitted to the PGI hospital in Chandigarh, some 130 km from the accident spot, Sangrur Deputy Commissioner Ghanshyam Thori said.

The boy, who had been trapped in the abandoned borewell since June 6, was retrieved by the rescuers of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF).
