Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

A six-year-old girl today died after falling into a water tank in an under-construction house in the Pul Prahladpur area here, police said.

A case of negligence has been registered and the owner of the under-construction house is being questioned, they added.

Arpita (6), a kindergarten student, and her elder sister had gone out to buy some household items.

It appears that on the way, Arpita went to the under-construction house, where she accidentally slipped and fell into the tank, police said, adding that the tank did not have a barrier around it.

On returning home, the elder sister told the parents that Arpita was missing.

The parents launched a search for the girl and found her body floating in the tank, police said.
