Kaveri had fallen into a discarded borewell on Saturday evening. She is the duaghter of Ajith Madari and Savitha Madari of Jhanjharwad in Athani taluk of Belagavi. Kaveri fell into the borewell while she was collecting wood along with her friends on Saturday evening.
National Disaster Response Force team from Pune has been doing everything to reach the girl who is stuck at a depth of 30 ft but in vain. Huge stone blocks in the ground are hampering their effort, it is said. The NDRF team is now assisted by Hatti Gold mines team and the teams have managed to go 24 ft down, so far.
Reports from the ground suggest that chances of Kaveri’s survival are bleak as it is more than 24 hours since she fell into the borewell.
