Residents of Wagle Estate had to face a shutdown of domestic gas supply early on Tuesday after a portion of Mahanagar Gas Limited (MGL) pipeline at road no. 22 got ruptured.
Rescue officials, who reached the spot immediately with a fire engine and a rescue vehicle, claimed that the damage took place due to the ongoing underground water pipeline laying work near the bus depot at Wagle Estate.
Santosh Kadam of the Regional Disaster Management Cell (RDMC), said, “The incident took place at around 3:30am. There was a JCB deployed at the spot and work of laying the pipes was being carried out.
