New Delhi, Jul 11: A five-year-old girl Tannu fell into an open pit on Sunday in a park in Mandavali and by the time she was rescued, she had breathed her last as the pit was filled with rainwater.

Local residents have demanded that action be taken against the concerned PWD official and compensation be given to the girl's family. They complained that the pit was kept open and was not surrounded with warning signs.
