When he was playing on Friday evening, Abhi Pachori, 3 years old had slipped and fallen into a borewell in his father’s field in Kheri-Gaon village of Dabra block. The village is about 45 kilometers from Gwalior. After falling  in the borewell, he has been motionless ever since.

The villagers raised the alarm soon and a team of field officials including the SDM, BSF men and revenue officials had rushed to the spot as early as possible. The rescue team had been worried about the lack of movement of the boy in the borewell and the presence of several-foot-long snake moving around him, as seen with a video camera.

In the past years, this is the third such incident in the state Madhya Pradesh. These incidents raise questions about the preparedness of the government to deal with and stop such crises. In both the past borewell incidents, the children died in the borewell before rescue personnel reached them.
