Hyderabad: For two-and-a-half-year-old Nama Shiva Rachith and his parents, Children’s Day was a day of mourning and not celebration.Nama Shiva attended Bachpan Play School located at RK Nagar in Malkajgiri. On Tuesday he was found to have drowned in the underground water sump located within the school’s premises.
No one was aware of the tragedy until Shiva’s mother Vishala went to pick him up from the school.“When I asked them to send my child out, they said he had not come to the school. My husband, I and his friends searched the premises and found my child drowned in the sump,” Vishala said. Police said the school management was negligent in leaving the sump open when filling water.
