Open defecation claims life of old woman in Rajsamand

Udaipur : Despite herculean efforts by the government to motivate people to use toilets, conservative ones prefer to follow the age old practice of open defecation and repent later. Such an incident took place at Togi of Bhim block in Rajsamand district on Monday when an elderly lady who had gone to relieve herself in the wee hours fell inside a well and died.

According to sources 93-year old Dalli Devi wo Prem Singh had gone to the fields. When she didn’t return after some time, family members went in search for her and found her fallen inside a well. By the time the villagers and police team drew her out, she had died. The village sarpanch Jayendra Singh informed that there was a toilet in the woman’s home, however, she didn’t use it as she was habitual of going out in the open for defecating.
