Take a look at the terrifying incident:

Just last month, the Kharguli area of Guwahati experienced a Gammon JICA water supply mainline pipe burst. This unfortunate event affected over 600 individuals, leaving approximately 30 injured. Tragically, one life was lost in the incident. The victim, identified as Sumitra Rabha, received a compensation cheque of ₹3 lakhs from the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund as a token of sympathy.

Following the Kharguli incident, another pipeline burst occurred in the Maligaon area, further exacerbating concerns over the city’s infrastructure. The recent Rajgarh Road near Commerce College Link Road pipeline burst added to the growing list of such incidents, prompting a need for immediate action and investigation into the root causes.

While today’s pipe burst near Noonmati Police Station has not resulted in any casualties as of now, the potential for property damage remains. Authorities are working swiftly to address the situation and minimize the impact on residents and their belongings.
