Heavy rain has caused a flood-like situation with almost all roads getting waterlogged in the city. The downpour has brought life to a standstill. A person was killed when the roof of his house collapsed in the Old Thana area in Bathinda.

As per information, 50-year-old Manohar Singh died while his 22-year-old son was injured in the incident. Their treatment is going on at the local Civil Hospital. Residents are suffering as rainwater has entered their houses and shops in various localities of the city. The situation turned so grim that Bathinda MC Deputy Mayor Harmander Singh also got stuck in a waterlogged road. He had to get out as his Innova submerged into rainwater.
