The police said that the girl is a student of the Kilinochchi, Bharathi Vidyalaya and had fallen into the well when she had gone to the unprotected well to obtain water for household purposes.
The post-mortem examination was carried out at the Kilinochchi Hospital yesterday (08).
The residents say that the child had escaped the recent floods and had been in a shelter and had returned home recently when she had faced this tragedy.
The villagers claim that there is no room in their little hut to even place the child’s coffin.
