School compound damaged by drainage works

September 30, 2018

Periyapatna: In a bizarre incident, the compound wall of a Government School at Bylakuppe in the taluk collapsed when the soil loosened while constructing an underground drainage just adjacent to the compound.

The compound wall of Bylakuppe Government High School was built in 2015-16 at a cost of Rs.7 lakh, with Rajya Sabha Member D. Kupendra Reddy contributing Rs.5 lakh and ZP Member V. Rajendra contributing Rs.2 lakh out of their respective Local Area Development Fund.

As the PWD workers were digging the ground for construction of a roadside drainage along the compound wall, the foundation of the wall became weak. Heavy rains on Tuesday night further weakened the compound’s foundation, resulting in the collapse of the wall.

The School Head Mistress Bhagya, taking the PWD officials to task, asked them to rebuild the wall, to which the officials agreed.
