    The child, identified as Sai Vardhan, was found 17 feet deep inside the borewell.

    Collector of Medak, K Dharma Reddy said, "There were three borewells dug without permission. Necessary action will be taken."

    The tragic incident took place at around 5 pm in an agriculture field located in Papannapet Mandal of the district when the boy was walking with his grandfather and father, a police official told PTI.

    The boy was supplied oxygen to the 120 feet open borewell by NDRF team which reached the spot to rescue the boy.

    The team also pressed earth excavation machines into service to dig around it.

    Initially, the family members tried to pull the child up with the help of a sari but failed.

    The family of the child dug three borewells on Tuesday night to find water for their fields.

    The borewell into which the child fell was among these three.

    But none of them yielded any water, police said.
