The post-mortem report of two-year-old Fatehvir Singh, who was pulled out from a 150-foot-deep unused borewell shaft Tuesday morning after an unsuccessful rescue operation that lasted over four days, suggested that he died a few days back. The child was rushed to the Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) here, but the doctors declared him brought dead. A panel of doctors, comprising Dr YS Bansal and Dr Senthil Kumar from the Department of Forensic Medicine at the PGIMER, conducted the post-mortem examination. The post-mortem findings are suggestive of death occurring a few days back. A detailed post-mortem report is being prepared and would be handed over to the investigating officer (police official), the PGIMER said in a statement issued in the afternoon. The mortal remains of the child were handed over to police and relatives, the institute said. According to the statement, Fatehvir Singh, son of Sukhwinder Singh, a resident of Bhagwanpura village in Sangrur, was brought to the Advanced Paediatric Centre at the PGIMER at 7.24 am Tuesday. On admission, he had no pulse, no respiration and no cardiac activity, hence, the child was declared brought in dead, the statement read.
