Operation To Rescue Punjab Boy Who Fell Into Drain Continues
A boy who fell into a drain here was being sought after on Wednesday by a 29-member team of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), according to officials. The one-and-a-half-year-old boy could not be removed from the drain despite the rescue effort lasting 20+ hours, they claimed.
According to Senior Superintendent of Police Navneet Singh Bains, the rescue teams have scoured the sewer and taken debris out of it, but they have not been able to find the child. He stated that the procedure would continue till the boy was removed from the drain.
According to police, the youngster has been identified as Abhilash, son of immigrants Surjit and Munisha. The event happened on Tuesday while the kid and his sister, who is four years old, were crossing a drain (nullah) by traversing a cemented pole that was placed over it.
According to investigators, the young child slid and fell into the clogged drain. They continued, saying that after his sister raised the alarm, neighbours gathered to look for the child. Vishesh Sarangal, the deputy commissioner for Kapurthala, requested a team from Bathinda to conduct the rescue operation on Tuesday night.
Earlier, according to authorities, the youngster was pulled from the nullah’s muck by JCB equipment and municipal corporation sewer-cleaning staff. Later, they claimed, large gear was also used to break concrete slabs over sewage in order to free the child.
