Summer's here, city braces for water, power woes 22.3.2017 deccanherald.com
This summer, India Meteorological Department has forecast a further rise in temperature with periodic thundershowers in Bengaluru and parts of south interior Karnataka. The city on Wednesday recorded a maximum of 34° Celsius, against 33.6° Celsius on Tuesday and 36° Celsius on Sunday. Sundar M Metri, director-in-charge, IMD-Bengaluru, told DH cloudy skies and thundershowers are expected in the coming days. "When humidity increases and there is moisture in the air, clouds are formed, which lead to thundershowers. After that, the temperature starts to soar again," he explained. He said the discomfort is due to dry weather and lack of wind. While the humidity level is 49%, wind speed is three knots. Increasing concretisation is also causing a slight increase in temperature, he said. Though the energy department claims that there is sufficient power to meet the summer needs, Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (Bescom) officials warn of power cuts due to maintenance work. "Though we have ...

Cops blame BWSSB for delay in probe 10.3.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The police blamed the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) over the delay in investigations into deaths of three manual scavengers. The first information report (FIR), registered by the police based on an eyewitness account, names a BWSSB engineer along with a contractor and a BBMP engineer. "It took two days for the BWSSB executive engineer to be present before the investigating officer and give his statement. He said the project on Kaggadaspura Road in CV Raman Nagar was undertaken by Ramky Infrastructure, a contractor. Representatives of the contractors had enough time to lock their company and go absconding," said a senior police officer privy to investigations. "We had to send notices to the accused as there was no response after the FIR was registered. Hence, we had to include BWSSB as one of the accused parties. Only after the notices were served, did the BWSSB executive engineer turn up on Friday. We have now issued notices to Ramky Infrastructure to present themselves within two ...

3 labourers die of suffocation in Bengaluru manhole 7.3.2017 deccanherald.com
Three contract labourers died of suffocation after they entered a manhole on a road here without any precaution to clear a blockage, police and officials said today. The incident occurred last night when a labourer first entered the 10 ft deep manhole without any protective measures and on not hearing from him for a long time another also went inside. Due to suffocation he shouted for help, upon which the tractor driver who had accompanied them also entered the manhole to rescue them. All the three might have died due to suffocation because of toxic gases inside the manhole, officials said, adding that their bodies were recovered hours later. The workers were engaged by Hyderabad-based Ramkay Enterprises, a contractor employed by Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) for the work, they said. BWSSB officials said the workers were involved by the contractors to clear the clogged line and the board was not intimated before starting the work as per procedures.
