Khetia (Madhya Pradesh): A man who had fallen into an overflowing drain managed to save himself by holding an iron board for one and a half hours.

The incident occurred near the Hanuman temple at Nagar Panchayat Khetia on Monday night.

The man, Sachin Sirasat, said that he was returning home at night and tried to cross the drainage as the water level seemed to be quite less due to garbage. But, suddenly, the flow of water increased and he barely managed to save himself

Despite the instructions of the district collectorShivraj Singh Verma and joint collector Anshu Jawla, no steps had been taken to clean the drainage before the monsoon.

According to councillor Ganesh Pawar, Nagar Panchayat Chief Municipal Officer of the area had been reminded several times by the locals to clean the drainage, but their pleas have been completely ignored. He again appealed to the authorities to do this work as soon as possible so that in future no accidents like this take place.
