Pune: Torrential rains lashed the city and
suburbs, claiming two lives and inundating low lying areas.

The heavy downpour that lasted for two hours last
night disrupted vehicular traffic even as various residential
societies reported water-logging at ground floors and parking
spaces.

Two construction workers were killed when a compound
wall came down in Pashan area, police said.

Fire brigade was called in at many places flooded with
gushing rainwater to remove affected people to safer places.

Heavy rainfall had resulted in the death of nine
persons last Wednesday in the city which witnessed flash
floods throwing normal life out of gear.
