घाटकोपर मधील कारच्या या घटनेशी महानगरपालिकेचा दुरान्वयानेही संबंध नाही. ही खासगी सोसायटी परिसरातील घटना आहे. सदर व्हायरल होत असलेल्या व्हिडिओ बाबतची वस्तुस्थिती पुढीलप्रमाणे आहे.— माझी Mumbai, आपली BMC (@mybmc) June 13, 2021
As it turns out, the car was actually parked over a well that was covered using RCC (Reinforced Cement Concrete).
घाटकोपर पश्चिम परिसरातील एका खासगी सोसायटीच्या परिसरात उभी असलेली ही कार पाण्यात बुडत असल्याची घटना आज सकाळी घडलेली आहे.— माझी Mumbai, आपली BMC (@mybmc) June 13, 2021
सदर सोसायटीच्या आवारात एक विहिर आहे. या विहिरीच्या अर्ध्या भागावर ‘आरसीसी’ करून ती विहीर झाकण्यात आली होती.
It has come to light that no one was harmed. Although shocking, this incident also sparked a meme fest on Twitter.
