One more person met an untimely end after being drowning in the under-construction culvert being built by KCC Buildicon Company on Mahrajpur-Sehejpur road.As per information, class XII student, Shivam Rajput, son of Rajkumar Rajput, resident of village Mahda along with his cousin Sanu, were going to Tendukheda on their bike to give exam. At the under-construction culvert, they stopped to see the level of water before crossing, but were swept away in the high current of water. Eye-witnesses rescued them and called 108 Ambulance as they were unconscious. But the ambulance did not reach on time. Then the villagers called Dial 100. Dial 100 jeep reached the spot and rushed the injured boys to Devri where doctors declared Shubham as brought dead. The father of victim alleged that when his son was brought to the hospital at Devri, he was alive but doctors did not attend to him for half an hour. However duty doctor Dr Archna Sharan informed that the boy was brought to hospital and he was dead at that time. It may be recalled that last week, Rameshwar Khetan’s eight-year-old son Neeraj met a watery grave at the same under-construction culvert near village Sarvawain and then villagers had staged chakka jam.

But construction company is still not taking any safety measures on the culvert due to which many lives are being lost.
