This comes after Mumbai and its neighbouring cities witnessed heavy rainfall with flooding reported in the usual low-lying areas of the city. 

In Mumbai’s Bhandup, two women suffered injuries after they fell into an open manhole on Wednesday evening. The three-foot-deep manhole was left open after heavy rains yesterday.

This comes after Mumbai and its neighboring cities witnessed heavy rainfall with flooding reported in the usual low-lying areas of the city.

In the CCTV footage, two women can be seen completely being taken off-guard as they wade through the water-logged area, tumbling in the open manhole.

On Tuesday, Mumbai municipal commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal urged staff to take all necessary procedures to protect civilians. Chahal convened a high-level conference with ward officials and representatives from other government institutions.

The civic chief had ordered that manholes be checked and closely monitored in all 24 wards to prevent any adverse accidents, particularly in places where there is considerable waterlogging. The BMC has also instructed Metro authorities to ensure that there is no waterlogging where barricades have been up for Metro work.
