The Delhi Jal Board (DJB) on Sunday announced that it is constructing a sewage pumping station of 53.5 MGD capacity, which will cost Rs 127 crore.
The DJB had recently commissioned a 7.5 km sewer line from Preet Vihar sewage pumping station to the Kondli sewage treatment plant.
“Commissioning of the newly-laid pipeline has benefited Laxmi Nagar, Shakarpur, Krishna Nagar, Preet Vihar group of colonies, Geeta Colony, Khureji, Chitra Vihar, Nirman Vihar and adjoining colonies. The problem of sewage overflow and surcharge of sewer line has been redressed considerably in these areas. The project will lead to improvement in sanitary conditions of the area and bring immense convenience to citizens,” a DJB official said.
The new line will carry sewage generated from these areas to the treatment plant at Kondli. It is expected to reduce pollution in the Yamuna.
“Over 10 police teams were formed to search the area and question all possible suspects, including neighbours,” DCP (South) Prem Nath said.
The child told her father that “uncle” had hurt her. Police rounded up all the men in the locality whom the child used to refer to as uncle or chachu. When they found that the accused was missing, they began searching for him and traced him to the railway colony from where he was arrested. He will be produced in court on Monday.
