The incident occurred when the 4-year-old had went to public toilet. The locals reported that he went to the toilet with another child. Unfortunately, the opening chamber of the water tank was left open when the victim fell into it. The other kid who was with the victim informed to the locals but the 4-year-old life had lost the race with his life.
