Batala: A 3-year-old girl fell into a borewell at Dheera village in Gurdaspur district on Wednesday, official sources said.

Dinnaj Kaur, a resident of Dairywal village, had come to her maternal village Dheera where she accidentally slipped into the borewell while playing near the spot with other children, Deputy Commissioner Gurdaspur Prithi Chand said.

The owner of the borewell had covered it with a gunny bag after its electric motor stopped functioning a few days back.

The district administration, which had launched rescue efforts to pull out the child, has sought Army assistance.
