A day after a video clip of 2 ladies getting on an open manhole in Bhandup location appeared on social media sites, community commissioner IS Chahal guided the Tornado Water Drains pipes division to check all the manholes on the city roadways and also change the ones harmed on a battle ground.
The CCTV video revealed the ladies, together, coming under the manhole at Town Roadway in the eastern residential area of Bhandup and also directly leaving being removed when hefty rainfalls battered the city on Wednesday. On Thursday, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Company (BMC) changed the harmed manhole cover.
As component of pre-monsoon workout, each of the 24- ward workplaces in Mumbai is needed to check all manholes and also change covers any place essential.
In 2015, a 32- year-old lady, recognized as Sheetal Dama, had actually passed away after coming under a manhole near Global Healthcare facility in Ghatkopar (East). 2 days later on, Dama’s body was recouped 22 kilometres away at Haji Ali in Worli.
In July 2019, adhering to hefty rainfall, a one-and-a-half-year-old young boy, Divyansh Singh, had actually passed away after coming under an open drainpipe. The exact same year, one more young boy, Sumit Jaiswar, 7, passed away in a comparable fashion in Dharavi. In Worli, a male recognized as Babu Kumar Paswan had actually sunk after coming under a pit that was loaded with water.
Responding to Wednesday’s case, Bharatiya Janata Celebration ( BJP) MP Manoj Kotak stated, “The wealthiest public body of India– BMC– is unable of maintaining manholes unclogged and also sewage (system) tidy. The Mumbaikars are lacking the fundamental right of tidiness and also currently the inexperience is showing deadly. The video clip of 2 ladies dropping in open manhole at Bhandup infuriates me to the core.”
