“Since no pipe was fixed inside the borewell, we could not send a person inside. If we send anyone, there is a danger of mud collapsing and him getting stuck,” said DN Singh, NDRF Assistant Commandant.

NDRF has also tried using Rescue Robot, but the baby’s hand has slipped repeatedly by the robotic arms.

The police tried water method to pull the girl up by the motor, but it failed. The civic bodies also tried digging mud from the different direction to reach the baby but huge rock caused a problem to penetrate.
