Gwalior: A three-year-old boy who had fallen into a borewell in Madhya Pradesh's Gwalior on Friday has been declared dead by doctors.

The boy was rescued a shortwhile ago and was taken to a hospital where doctors confirmed the sad development.

The rescue operations were intensified this morning after a snake was spotted in the same borewell.

The snake was seen via the camera which had been lowered into the borewell to keep a watch on the child.

The boy had slipped into the borewell yesterday and got stuck at a depth of about 30-35 feet.

The rescue operations were co-ordinated by the Border Security Force (BSF).

A parallel tunnel was dug up in order to reach the boy.
