The Lotus Tower’s large scale water pipeline erupted

Workers of maintenance section of Nelum Pokuna had been called up due to a rupture of a water pipe of 'Nelum Tower' which was expected to be commissioned after the completion of the work, the Mawbima newspaper reports.

According to an official of the Telecommunication Regulatory Commission last week, the place had been closed by the contractor as the construction was completed.

However, a large water pipe had erupted yesterday and 'Mawbima' journalists who had gone to report the incident had been prevented from entering to the premises by the security personnel.

Meanwhile, a worker had confirmed that a large water pipe had ruptured in the tower. However a senior official rejected to respond to the quarries.
