Ludhiana, July 8

Days after a road portion caved in on the Kaka Marriage palace road, a big crater appeared outside a house at Dugri, Phase 2, today. Around 10 to 20 feet long portion of land, which was used as green belt outside a house, caved-in after rainfall in the city.

After getting information, officials of the Municipal Corporation (MC) reached the spot to take necessary steps. MC sub-divisional officer Arshdeep Singh said an old dart sewer (made of bricks) passed beneath the caved in portion. The dart sewer was more than 40- year-old, he added.

“We received a call from a resident about cave-in. We reached the site and took required steps. The work has been started to repair the damaged sewer lane,” he said.
