Mahendragarh, July 11
A two-to-four feet deep and six inches-to-one foot wide crack has developed in the soil at Kheri village under Ateli subdivision. It is around 1 km long on the ‘gaucharan’ land in the village.
Deputy Commissioner RK Singh today sent a team of officers led by Kanina SDM to the village to take stock of the situation. The team interacted with the villagers and submitted its report to the DC.
“Expertise is required to ascertain the cause of the wide crack in the earth. Hence, we have decided to call a hydrologist from Gurugram after going through the report submitted bythe team. The hydrologist is likely to visit the village tomorrow. Further action will be taken as per the advice of the hydrologist,” RK Singh told The Tribune.
Sarpanch Narendra Chauhan said a slight crack had developed following the impact of a tremor that shaken the region over a week ago. The crack became wider and deeper due to the rain. As it may widen further in the coming days, the district administration was today informed about it so that preventive measures could be taken, he added.
