It appears that water was being stored in the basement for construction purposes, but with the work halted in recent days, it had become an attractive playground for the neighbourhood children. This unfortunate incident occurred in a building adjacent to Bannerghatta Road, and local authorities, including the Suddagunte Palya Police, are investigating the circumstances surrounding the tragic accident.

Suspecting that the children might have drowned in it, the fire brigade personnel were informed and the dead bodies of the children were removed.
