**Nabrangpur: ** In a shocking incident, a four-year-old boy named Chandan Pujari was drowned to death in a pond on Tuesday at Chiliguda village due to sheer negligence of his parents.
Notably, Chandan along with her one and half year old sister, Baidi Pujari was going to Chiliguda Anganwadi Centre at 10 a.m without any escort. In the mid-way, they had stopped at a pond and started to play there. Both got drowned in the pond. The people working in the nearby field on unthreshed paddy rushed to their help hearing their cries.
They jumped into the pond to rescue the siblings. Baidi was alive when rescued but Chandan was found dead.
