44-hours of battel lead to demise

Mayank (6), son of Vijay Adivasi, had fallen into an open borewell between 3.30 pm and 4 pm on Friday afternoon in Manika village under the jurisdiction of Janeh police station area, about 90 km from Rewa district headquarters. The depth of the borewell is said to be 160 feet deep.
