A buf­falo fell into an open sewage drainage at Ovala Naka, op­po­site Mahin­dra show­room, in Thane on Satur­day. Passers-by gath­ered and tried to pull it out but they couldn’t. The fire brigade was called. Af­ter four hours, the fire per­son­nel pulled the buf­falo out. Ra­jen­dra Patil, a res­i­dent, said: “There has been no cover on the manhole drainage for more than a year now. There are many such open man­holes in the area. Sandeep Malvi, pub­lic re­la­tions of­fi­cer of TMC, said, “It is im­pos­si­ble that the manhole was open for a year. We checked all drains and man­holes. There are mis­cre­ants who steal cov­ers to earn a quick buck.”
