Sehore (Madhya Pradesh), June 8: The two-and-half-year-old girl, who was rescued from a 300 ft deep borewell in Madhya Pradesh's Sehore district earlier on Thursday, has died, officials said on Thursday.
According to doctors, the reason behind the death of the girl is suffocation. Sehore District Collector Ashish Tiwari said, "Despite all our attempts, we could not save the girl. Postmortem by a team of two doctors reveals that the body is in a decomposed state. Further details are awaited."
