Prince, the five-year-old child who made head lines by surviving the three-day ordeal in the bottom of a bore-well in a village in this district recently, was hosptalised on Thursday following fever and throat infection.
Doctors attending on him in the local Lok Nayak Jai Parkash Hospital said it could be Malaria or viral. The child was admitted to the hospital at 7 pm on Thursday evening.
The doctors suspected that Prince might have contracted the infection in Mumbai, where he was taken by a private TV channel, to have an interaction with filmstars like Sunny Deol, Arbaz Khan and Malaika Khan.
The child, who had 101 degree centigrade fever, was also having bad tonsils, they said. He was given oral medication and was under observation. His father Ram Chander and mother Sarabjeet were also by the side of Prince as he was being attended by doctors.
