Haryana government on Sunday ordered a magisterial probe into the death of four-year-old girl Mahi after falling into an abandoned borewell.

"A magisterial inquiry has been ordered in the case," Gurgaon District Magistrate PC Meena told PTI.

He said a case has also been registered against Rohatash Tayal, the landowner who had dug up the borewell.

Tayal has been absconding and the state police have sent out two teams to trace him.

Meanwhile, Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda condoled the death of Mahi and said her family would be adequately compensated.

Hoping to get the inquiry report at the earliest, Hooda said those found guilty would not be spared.

As it is mandatory to seek permission of the Deputy Commissioner to dig a borewell in Gurgaon as per the direction of the High Court, a separate case of contempt of court would also be initiated against Tayal, a spokesman of the district administration said.

The inquiry would be conducted by Additional Deputy Commissioner Gurgaon M Pandurang.
