BENGALURU: Kengeri police investigating the death of a seven-year-old boy who died after drowning in a storm water drain have written to BBMP to conduct a probe on the security lapses and encroachment of the drain, and submit a report.
On Wednesday, Rakesh’s body was found in an open drain at Nagadevanahalli in Kengeri. As his footwear and a plastic mug were found near the spot, police believe he may have gone there to attend nature’s call.
A senior police officer said a case of unnatural death has been registered based on preliminary investigation.
“We have found that a local person has encroached the land adjacent to the drain and dumped mud into it. This made it possible for people to access the drain to relieve themselves. Rakesh also went there and fell in it. We will file a case against the land owner based on the BBMP report,” police officials said.
