Nearly 100 hours after two-year-old Fatehvir Singh fell into a 150-foot-deep borewell in Punjab’s Sangrur district, officials Sunday said the operation to rescue him is in its “final stage”. Fatehvir, who is the only child of his parents, fell into the unused borewell in a field while he was playing near his house around 4 pm Thursday, officials said.
The public has expressed deep disappointment on the 4 day operation to get the boy out. The public has questioned the government for it’s lack of support in the effort. The operation is being carried forward by all volunteers. Govt employees during the operation only seem to be standing around and watching the events.
The public has stated that quick action needs to be taken immediately to recover the child.
Here is some of the reactions:
