Varanasi, July 23 (UNI) Students of a gurukul in this religious city today performed sacred rituals and offered prayers for the life and safety of Prince -- the 5-year-old boy, who is trapped in a 60-feet deep pit of a submersible tubewell in Kurukshetra (Haryana).
The students of Purwa Madhyama and Uttar Madhyama, aged between five and 14 years and dressed in customary sartorials performed the 'Rudhrabhishek' of Lord Shiva, followed by the 'Havan' and 'Raksha Kavach Jaap' in the Dharam Sangh Shiksha Mandal here.
''The rituals were performed to pray for the life and safety, besides the early rescue of Prince,'' said Jagjitanji Maharaj, the incharge of the Gurukul.
