Pole in drain to avert death trap

The lid of a manhole at the Raja Dinendra Street-Vivekananda Road crossing has been missing for quite some time. A resident of the area has stuck a bamboo pole into the open hole to alert passersby. The road gets waterlogged even after a mild rain. Besides, pedestrians, including schoolchildren, cross the road in a hurry during peak hours. Accidents are imminent, unless all open manholes are capped immediately. Kalyan Ray Chaudhuri, Maniktala.

Wallet watch

Cases of purse-picking on private buses during office hours is on the rise. Plainclothes police must board the buses to check the practice. B.N. Bose, Dum Dum.
