NMMC IN DENIAL MODE
Gaikwad said, “We inspected the site following media report on the issue. We did not find the pipeline punctured or leaking anywhere. Prima facie, it seems that water accumulated in the area from the mountain nearby. That water is pumped using the motors into the tankers. We have informed the water department about it and they will inquire into it.”
While NMMC seized two water
pumps from the site on Saturday, it has denied that water is being stolen from the pipeline. Belapur ward officer Ravindra Gaikwad has claimed that it is rain water from the mountain that the tankers collect from the area.
