Staff Reporter

Thiruvananthapuram: Ombudsman for Local Self-government Institutions M.R. Hariharan Nair has directed Corporation officials to carry out a site inspection of a drain, near Thiruvallom, which is reportedly posing a threat to pedestrians due to the absence of a covering slab.

The Ombudsman noted that there were media reports that a student waiting for a bus fell into the drain recently and suffered injuries. The Ombudsman also directed the Corporation Engineer to visit the place and see that a cover for the drain is in place in a week.
