Govt. taking all steps: CM

By Our Special Correspondent

CHENNAI, SEPT. 1. The government is taking all steps to rescue the boy trapped in the private borewell in Mannadi for three days now, the Chief Minister, Ms. Jayalalithaa assured the Assembly today.

The City police had arrested the person who had sunk the borewell into which the boy, Tamizhmani fell and continues to battle for life, she said.

The Army was also helping in the efforts, she added.

Criticising media reports on lack of a coordinated rescue effort by various government departments, the Chief Minister said the English newspapers which had published the reports should desist from issuing such ``hasty, false news out of bias.''
