BANGALORE (April 1)— A woman had to go through 45 stitches on her left calf on Monday, when she fell into a ditch that had been dug up six months back by the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewage Board’s waste management division at DJ Halli.
The incident occurred at S.K Garden, a neighboring ward of DJ Halli, when Farida Shariff, 35, along with her 18-year-old son, were returning home at 10:30 pm. The duo fell into a ditch that had been dug by the city’s water supply board half a year back, but not yet been completed.
Farida fell on top of one of the pipes that had jagged edges as it had been cut in half by BWSSB workers, causing it to run through four-and-a-half inches of flesh on her left leg.
“I was at home when I got a call informing me about my wife’s injury,” said Munir Shariff, husband of Farida, who own a lorry workshop in the same area. “I rushed to the spot and got her admitted in Mediscope Hospital, where she had to undergo a total of 45 stitches.”
The cost of administering medical treatment to Farida’s wounds was heavy on Munir’s pocket, which has had to pay a total of Rs. 10,000 till now for the treatment of his wife’s injuries.
