18 hours and counting: Search for 3 year-old Divyansh continues in Mumbai

Mumbai | The search for 3-year-old Divyansh who fell into a sewer in Goregaon Suburb of Mumbai at 10 pm on Wednesday is still underway after 18 hours.

Divyansh Singh was strolling outside his house when he fell into the drain near Goregaon-Malad Link road,” the official of the Disaster Management Unit of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said.

“When the boy’s mother could not find him, she panicked and raised an alarm. The footage of the CCTV camera installed near the building was checked, in which he was seen falling into the drain,” he said.

Hitting out at the BMC, NCP chief spokesman Nawab Malik said the incidents were taking place due to the “negligence” of the civic body. He demanded that a case be registered against the guilty concerned under IPC section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder).

“A case should be registered against the guilty officials concerned under section 304 of the IPC…plastic manhole cover used by the BMC get washed away. Such incidents are taking place due to the negligence of the corporation,” Malik said.
