All these days, driving vehicles or crossing roads was believed to be dangerous in this city.

Even walking on a ‘nala’ would be fatal. Hyderabadis realised this the hard way when a four-month pregnant woman Malini slipped inside after the ‘Shahabad’ stone on a nala she stepped on broke. Her body was found a day later.

Everyone felt sad about the death but none is raising the question as to who is responsible for her death.

Is it the low quality slab work or purely her fate?
