A three-year-old boy was rescued by the Delhi Police from Greater Kailash area on Sunday, after he had accidentally locked himself in the bathroom at his residence, officials said.
Police officers reached the house immediately after receiving a Police Control Room (PCR) call from the boy’s grandfather, who is a retired Finance Ministry official, about the incident around 1.59 p.m.
The grandfather had also met the station house officer (SHO) to inform him about the incident.
The police team in action, with the help of hammers and long screwdrivers among others, broke open the door of the bathroom and rescued the child.
The kid suffered from trauma after he stayed locked in the bathroom for a long time. Meanwhile, Centralized Accidents and Trauma Services (CATS) Ambulance and Fire Tender teams had also reached the spot, but the police had rescued the child by then.
“The retired IAS officer has appreciated our efforts. The child is being counselled. The family is very happy and appreciative of the prompt response and police efforts in evacuating the child,” police officials said.
