Bengaluru residents were in for a shock in the morning as the Varthur lake started foaming due to its heavy toxicity. Sunday witnessed a heavy spell of rain following which the toxic lake started spewing foam, covering the streets of Bengaluru.
The increased froth overflowed on roads causing inconvenience to motorists, after three days of continuous rains.
Earlier, another lake in Bengaluru had caught fire because of the pollutants released into it. The National Green Tribunal, this year, ordered the closure of all industries that pollute around Bengaluru.
