Bathinda, July 21

Two children reportedly drowned in a water tank of their house at Luhar Khera village in Mansa district recently.

The police have not received any information regarding this incident till date. It is learnt that the incident took place two to three days ago and the bodies of the children had been cremated.

The deceased have been identified as Navkirat Kaur (8) and Shubhdeep Singh (5). It is learnt that the victims’ grandmother is mentally challenged and she reportedly put both children in the water tank. When the victim’s mother was told by her that both were taking bath in the water tank, she immediately rushed to the tank and pulled them out of it. The children were given first aid, but one kid died on the spot and the other died after sometime.

Sardulgarh SDM Latif Ahmed said two children had died, but the family had not given any information to the police and the panchayat department to get the department action done in this incident. He said the family still did not want any action taken in this case.

Sardulgarh police station SHO Sandeep Bhati said the family or panchayat had not given any information to the police regarding this, so there was no record of the death of the two children registered at the police station.
