The incident occurred in Barahbujurg village, about 36 kms away from the district headquarters, in the morning, he said.

“The boy, identified as Prahlad, son of Harikishan Kushwaha, fell into the borewell when labourers were putting a pipe casing in it,” Prithvipur police station in-charge Narendra Tripathi said.

“The borewell has water in it up to 100 feet from the ground, hence is not clear at what depth the child is stuck inside,” he said.

The district administration has launched a rescue operation with the help of experts, Tripathi said, adding that the borewell was recently dug.
