An officer from Dombivli Manpada police station said, “After looking at several places, the family members and their neighbours went to a nearby construction site, where one of them had found a boy in a pit full of water. His body was floating and he was declared dead before admission in a nearby hospital. We questioned every labourer on the site but none had seen the boy playing near the pit. We are also waiting for the post-mortem report to get the cause of the death. Meanwhile, we have filed an accidental death report in the case.”
