Mumbai: Bollywood actors Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan are mighty peeved with Haryana state administration for taking four days to rescue baby Mahi, who fell into a 70 feet-deep borewell near Manesar, Gurgaon on Wednesday night.

Salman actor wonders why are borewells not covered up. Such events have been on the rise and many children have been accidentally held captive in borewells even earlier.

Salman took to Twitter to express his angst and wrote, “So angry,y don`t these idiots cover bore well`s?Hope n pray that mahi survive`s,poor baby,had to suffer 85hrs b cs of careless grownups(sic).”

However, he saluted the army men for their efforts to rescue the child.

He wrote, "Hats off to the army jawans n personnel for doing such a self less ,gr8 n commendable job , jai jawaaaannnn(sic)."

While Amitabh Bachchan is in a state of shock. He wrote, "I hope this is incorrect .. but hearing from authorities that little Mahi has not survived .. so sad and depressing !!(sic)."

He added, "We successfully launch ICM's, but could not successfully save a little child that fell into a bore well !!!(sic)."

The 5 year old child was pulled from the borewll and rushed to the hospital on Sunday afternoon. But the baby succumbed to the trauma and passed away.

Rest in peace Baby Mahi.
