The operation to rescue the child continued for the third day on Saturday. After almost 40 hours after the incident, a movement in his body was noticed at 5am on Saturday.

The officials started to dig a parallel tunnel to reach the child, Fatehveer Singh, who is supposed to turn 2 on June 10, believed to be stuck at a depth of 150 feet in the borewell that has a 4.5-inch radius, they said.

The parallel tunnel still needs digging of 45-50 feet and it is going manually as mechanical digging may lead to a collapse of a large nearby portion, a rescuer told IANS on phone.

After digging of the parallel tunnel gets completed, a passage to make access to the child would be made through another vertical tunnel, he said.


An adequate supply of oxygen inside the well is provided and a camera has been planted to keep a watch on the child. His movements were being monitored regularly, Deputy Commissioner Ghanshyam Thori told reporters.

The rescue team, comprising 26 members of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and Indian Army and district administration staff, has been involved in the day-and-night rescue operation at Bhagwanpura in Sunam subdivision.


Gurmeet Ram Rahim, the head of DeraSachaSauda (DSS), one among the famous religious groups which participate in all welfare activities has also joined the rescue operations to save the child.

An attempt was made earlier to pull out the child with the help of a rope. He has been tied with a rope to prevent his slipping down, a rescuer said.

The NRDF said this is going to be one of the toughest operations as the depth of the well where the child is trapped is unusually high.

The borewell has been abandoned for over seven years. This was the second such incident in the region in less than three months. After a 48-hour-long rescue operation, a one-and-a-half-year-old boy, who fell into a 70-foot narrow borewell in Haryana's Hisar district, was rescued on March 22.

Meanwhile, the Twitterati in India are praying for the safe rescue of the child by tweeting with #prayersforfatehveer and in praise of #Derasachasaudha and their head #GurmeetRamRahim. Here are few of those tweets that are trending:
