Raging Yamuna nears all-time record level in Delhi.

Raging Yamuna

According to official agencies, the Yamuna river in Delhi grew to a height of 207.25 metres and was perilously close to the all-time record high of 207.49 metres set in 1978.

The Old Railway Bridge’s water level reached 207 metres for the first time since 2013 around 4 am, according to the Central Water Commission’s (CWC) flood-monitoring portal, and it reached 207.25 metres by 8 am on Wednesday.

A representative of the irrigation and flood control agency predicted that the river will reach 207.35 metres by noon and then continue to rise.

The Yamuna water level has risen quickly in Delhi during the past three days. It rose quickly from 203.14 metres at 11 a.m. on Sunday to 205.4 at 5 p.m. on Monday, breaking beyond the 205.33-meter danger mark 18 hours earlier than anticipated.

On Monday night, the river had risen above the 206-meter evacuation threshold, forcing residents of flood-prone regions to move to safer areas and forcing the closure of the Old Railway Bridge to both road and rail traffic.

According to CWC data, the river’s current water level of 207.25 metres is the highest since 2013, when it reached a level of 207.32 metres.

According to a representative, the weekend’s significant precipitation in Delhi and the surrounding areas contributed to the soil being saturated and causing the water level to rise sharply. This rain was continuing in the upper catchment areas.

According to the agency, residents of low-lying areas have been relocated to safer locations at higher altitudes.

According to the report, 45 boats have been sent out for rescue, evacuation, and awareness operations, and NGOs have been enlisted to help the evacuated people.

“Traffic on the Old Railway Bridge has been suspended. All gates of the Okhla Barrage have been opened to release excess water and prevent prolonged high water levels,” the department said.

It said that in order to address the flood situation, all district magistrates involved and their sector committees are on high alert and collaborating with the Irrigation and Flood Control Department, Delhi Police, Delhi Jal Board, Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board, and other stakeholders.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had on Monday said a flood-like situation is unlikely in Delhi, but the city government is prepared to tackle any eventuality.

According to the CWC, the flow rate at the Hathnikund barrage increased to 3,59,760 cusecs at 11 am on Tuesday, the highest in the last three days. It remained above the 2 lakh cusec mark till Wednesday morning.

Normally, the flow rate at the barrage is 352 cusecs, but heavy rain in the catchment areas increases the discharge. One cusec is equivalent to 28.32 litres per second.

The water from the barrage takes around two to three days to reach Delhi.

The India Meteorological Department said that various locations in Uttarakhand and surrounding areas of Uttar Pradesh had heavy rain, prompting fears about a potential additional rise in river levels.

Tourist Slapped and Pushed by Security Personnel for Filming Reel at Taj Mahal, Caught on Camera

A CISF officer and a tourist got into a violent argument in a recent video taken at the famous tourist destination Taj Mahal in Agra. The now-viral video on social media depicts how a verbal altercation between the two ends in a physical altercation. The visitor was purportedly trying to film a reel on the monument grounds, even though it is prohibited there. Ramesh Chand, a CISF officer on duty, got involved in the altercation because he prevented the tourist and his buddies from filming the event, according to an India Today article.

According to a police report, the incident happened on Saturday at around 2:00 pm when the guests attempted to film a video close to the “Mehmankhana,” in violation of the facility’s filming rule. The rules prevented the female tourist there with her pals from filming the video, but in spite of this warning, they persisted in filming. This resulted in the tourist’s cell phone being taken by CISF officers, which sparked a furious dispute.

In actuality, the footage shows the tourist assaulting the policeman, who pushes back, sending her to the ground. But the woman gets back up and tries to strike the CISF officers once more. The two girls who were with the woman after this altercation tried to break things up by asking to use the phone to call the police. Subsequently, one of them informed the CISF control room about the situation.

In order to determine what caused the altercation, the authorities are looking at both the viral video and local CCTV footage. The investigation into the matter is presently underway, and necessary action has been guaranteed in light of the probe’s results. Authorities have asked visitors visiting the Taj Mahal to strictly abide by the rules and regulations in place because the monument is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
