If the NDRF team from Ghaziabad could reach within two hours on the fateful night when Mahi
fell into the borewell, she probably could have been saved.
Earlier, it was reported that an army rescue team was just inches away from retrieving four-year-old Mahi
after over 81 hours on Sunday morning.
Residents of Mahi
's native Khoh village raised slogans against the rescue teams and the district administration on hearing of her death.
's family said that they were not informed properly about the status of the operation being carried out to rescue her.
But caterers for Mahi

Officials supervising the rescue operation said they are supplying Mahi
with oxygen through pipes and giving her food as well.
's family has been inconsolable for the past two days, pleading with the authorities to save her.
