Cars and two-wheeler riders were assailed by the thick froth, formed because of the industrial and household effluents flowing into the lake. "Because of heavy rainfall, the foam started rising again. This morning it was really bad and the foam was flying out from above the mesh.

In the evening, the situation worsened as it started to rain heavily. Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) chairman Lakshman said that majority of the polluting industries have been closed already.
