BENGALURU: The fourth day of search operations ended on a grim note as the body of six-year-old Usna Baig was not found on Thursday too.

Fire personnel wrapped up the day’s search after deciding to continue the search at places near the rajakaluve, where eagles are seen.

Though police searched for an area of more than 2 km in the rajakaluve canal to which the drainage is connected, they were not able to trace the child’s body. They had also dug the earth to a depth of about 10 feet.

A police official said, “The accused has not confirmed where he pushed Usna in from.”

Agencies such as Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike, Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board, National Disaster Response Force, police, fire and emergency service, and local people are participating in the search operation.

Three children of the same family went missing on August 27.

It emerged later that Fayum, the lover of the mother of these children, had allegedly pushed the children into a manhole late last month in Banaswadi police limits.

The bodies of two of the children Abbas Ali (8) and Raheem Baig (4) were recovered on Monday and Tuesday respectively.
