A two-year-old boy has sustained serious injuries after debris lying on the hill slope fell onto his house at Jagdusha Nagar slum in Ghatkopar (West) on Saturday morning. The boy was admitted in Rajawadi Hospital and is now out of danger.

BMC recently demolished several slums on the hill slope adjoining Tansa pipeline following a high court’s order. The civic authority left the debris unattended after demolishing the houses and it was gradually moving down after intermediate showers in the last few days. On Saturday, around 7 pm, the debris hit around four houses injuring the boy.
