A three-year-old boy accidentally fell into a newly drilled open borewell in Medak district of Telangana on Wednesday. Police said rescue operations are on to pull him out.

The incident took place at around 5pm in a field in Papannapet mandal of the district when the boy was walking with his grandfather and father, said a senior police official.
