A 5-year-old boy, Vasu, died while playing near a deep pit, at the outskrits of Namalapadu village of Bayyaram mandal in Mahbubabad district. The pits were dug by forest officials, as the village comes under forest area. The boy was playing near the pits when he fell in to it and died. As there was heavy rainfall, the pits are filled with water. The forest officials wanted to plant saplings. The villagers are protesting against the officials, demanding Rs. 10 lakh compensation to the family of the deceased.
