Chhatarpur (MP), Feb 26: A three-year-old girl who fell into an open borewell in Madhya Pradesh's Chhatarpur district on Sunday was rescued after a three-hour operation, officials said.

The incident took place around 5 pm at Lalguan Pali village under Bijawar police station limits, some 40 kms from the district headquarters, when the child slipped into a borewell while playing, Bijawar Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM) Rahul Siladia said.

Taking to Twitter, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan informed the girl named Nancy was rescued safely and has been taken to a nearby hospital for check up.

Siladia had earlier said the girl was stuck at a depth of around 30 feet and rescue teams with various kinds of equipment as well as an earth mover were at the site.

In June last year, a five-year-old boy had fallen into a borewell in his family's agricultural field in Chhatarpur district's Nayanpura Patharpur village. He was later rescued after an eight-hour-long operation.

Kingstown: In a thrilling Super 8 encounter at the T20 World Cup 2024, Afghanistan secured a historic semi-finals berth by defeating Bangladesh by 8 runs via the DLS method. This victory marks Afghanistan's first appearance in the semi-finals of a major ICC event and eliminates Australia from the tournament, who needed a Bangladesh win to advance.

The match which was hit by rain saw Afghanistan defending a low total with Rashid Khan delivering a stellar performance. Rashid took four crucial wickets and contributed a vital 10-ball 19-run cameo with the bat, pushing Afghanistan's total beyond 100 runs. Despite a resilient half-century by Bangladesh's Litton Das, who carried his bat to the end, Rashid Khan's efforts ensured Afghanistan's victory.

This dramatic win highlights Afghanistan's growing prowess in international cricket and sets the stage for an exciting semi-final round in the T20 World Cup 2024.

Batting first, Afghanistan had scored 115 for 5 in their 20 overs and then bowled out Bangladesh for 105 in 17.5 overs.
