Bhubaneswar: In a widely circulated CCTV footage, three youths are seen struggling to wade through knee-deep water at Acharya Vihar here on early Tuesday.
In the video, we see three youths on a motorcycle crossing the Acharya Vihar flyover underpass at about 12.55 am. The Capital City had witnessed torrential rain last night owing to a low pressure in the Bay of Bengal. And the result was that one of the important points of the City- Acharya Vihar was filled with rain water.
The swirling waters of the waterlogged road make the youths lose control over their bike and it’s clear that they were being swept away in the strong current. Two pillion riders are seen getting down and helping the rider push the motorcycle to safer place.
The identity of the three youths is yet to be ascertained.
Waterlogging in the Capital has been a persistent problem for last few years and such cases pop up every year; but the City administration is yet take any strong steps.
