RAHIM YAR KHAN: An eight-year-old child died after falling in a sewerage hole near Shahbazpur Road here on Sunday.

Irshaad, uncle of Muhammad Zubair, said the child had been missing since Friday evening. He along with Zubair’s father Muhammad Asghar searched for him and also submitted an application about his disappearance in local police station. On Sunday, they found his body in a nearby sewerage hole.
