Bangalore: Body of the nine-year old girl who had slipped and fell into an overflowing storm water drain on Monday night was found in a open drain that leads to the Madiwala Lake on Wednesday.
Geetha Lakshmi, a resident of Cuddalore in Tamil Nadu was on a vacation to Bangalore. On Monday night she was going with her aunt to her house after visiting a relative when she accidentally fell through a gap on the concrete slap covering a drain along Bannerghatta Raod, Bilekahalli in south-east Bangalore.
As the roads were flooded due to heavy rains that day, Geetha was washed away before help could reach her.
A massive search operation was launched to locate her with teams from the National Disaster Response Force joining the effort.
