A six-year-old boy died after a rickshaw plunged into an open drain while saving a bike rider in Shahpur Kanjran on Saturday.
The victim was identified as Kashif, son of Mohammad Boota, a rickshaw driver by profession.
It was reported that Boota along with his son Kashif was on his way when a bike rider suddenly came on road. Boota tried to save him and his vehicle fell into the open drain. As a result, Kashif received a serious head injury and died on the spot while Boota sustained injuries.

Found dead: A 15-year-old boy was recovered dead from the canal in Chung area on Saturday.
Some passersby spotted a body floating in the canal and informed the police. The body was fished out and removed to city morgue for autopsy to ascertain the cause of death.
