Two brothers, who fell into bore-well, found dead


Agra: Two brothers, who fell into a 50-foot deep bore-well in a village in Agra district Monday evening, were found dead Tuesday after an over-27 hours long rescue operation, first by the police and later by army personnel.

Masons Lal Singh and Netrapal, both in their early forties, were cementing the peripheral wall of a widened, open bore-well, in Burhan village, 30 km from the city. The two had almost finished their work around 4 p.m. Monday, when a part of the wall caved in and they fell into the well, an official said.

Local residents and government employees kept digging Monday night but to little avail. The army’s help was sought by the district administration Tuesday morning.

The villagers had lost all hopes of their survival but the two’s family members were still hopeful.
