Efforts were still on till late Thursday evening to rescue Komal Meena, who fell into a borewell around 6 pm on Tuesday in Alwar’s Rajgarh town.
While the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) had been called Wednesday morning, the Army was called on Thursday morning. “While the NDRF had been trying to get through to the girl inside the borewell, Army officials suggested digging around the borewell to reach Komal. Hence, two JCB excavators were pressed into action today. However, we still can’t say as to when we might reach the kid,” Additional SP, Rural, Suresh Kheenchi, said.
