ON THE night of March 23 a series of explosions ripped through the sewer drains all the way from Panchkuian Road to Karol Bagh 4 km away. They are 2 of the most crowded commercial areas in New Delhi.
At the end of the 30-minute drama, which started arround 11.15 pm, 14 people sustained injuries, 4 of them seriously. The explosions, apparently caused by volatile methane, from fermenting organic waste were powerful enough to blow heavy iron manhole covers several feet high.
