Shanta Kumar, the excavator operator who was washed away in a drain on Saturday night near Kurubarahalli, remained untraceable even on Monday despite an intensified search operation. As many as 250 personnel comprising BBMP engineers, firemen, National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) searched various locations in vain. The search operation that commenced from Kurubarahalli on Sunday night finally reached Kambipura. A renewed effort began on Monday with the search team forming two teams and setting out in two boats to search for the missing person. The boats finally reached Byramangala lake where an extensive search began. The rescue teams roped in 24 excavators to trace the missing person. BBMP chief engineer (SWD) Siddegowda said the search operation did not yield any result. "The teams reached Byramangala lake. There was no success though. We will focus on the lake," said Siddegowda.

SPEAK UP: As Delhiites face water woes, DNA looks at Heritage sources of the elixir 22.5.2017 DNA: Opinion
As the temperature rises, water shortage in many parts of the city becomes a major problem for the residents. Every year, people face water shortage and even get into a scuffle with the Haryana government which is bound to share water after a 1996 Supreme Court order. Delhi receives 60 per cent of the water shared by the Delhi Jal board from Haryana. Despite the shortage, many heritage water bodies in Delhi that stand a chance for revival, remain neglected and have either dried up or contain stagnant water which are grounds for mosquito breeding. There exist over 25 Baolis in Delhi and eight lakes/water bodies, which if revived would resolve almost the entire water shortage problem in the city. An attempt was made to revive the Gandhak ki Baoli and Rajo'n ki Baoli, the water was recharged, but it required more cleaning as it was not potable. The water lies stagnant now. The Neela Hauz Lake, which was the source of drinking water for the locality near the Sanjay Van and Vasant Kunj area, and was once the ...
