New Delhi: In an unfortunate development, an eight-year old child has died at Yuvraj Singh’s Panchkula residence after a gate fell on him.

According to newsx.com, maintenance work has been going on at the house, and in the construction area, son of a labourer was dangling from the residence’s gate which fell on the boy.

The boy was immediately taken to a nearby hospital where he was declared dead. The report also added, that the police handed over the body to the victim’s family after post-mortem on Friday.

The police, in fact, have put the blame on the child for negligence, rather than booking the cricketer or those occupying the residence for the unfortunate incident.

However, the police have started an investigation to ascertain the situation when the incident took place.

The house is registered under Yuvraj’s mother.

Further reports revealed that there was no one at Yuvraj's place at the time of the accident as both the cricketer and his mother were at their Gurugram residence.

The 34-year-old India all-rounder is recuperating from an injury picked up during the recently concluded ICC World Twenty20 in India, and is expected to join Sunrisers Hyderabad team-mates soon for their Indian Premier League campaign.
