No water supply tomorrow

TIRUCHI: Drinking water supply will remain suspended in the following areas, served by the Golden Rock Combined Drinking Water Scheme, on Monday owing to repair works to be taken up in the distribution mains: Ariyamangalam, Melakalkandarkottai, Sangiliandapuram, Senthaneerpuram, Subramaniapuram, Ponmalaipatti, Airport, Khajamalai, Crawford Anbu Nagar, TVS Nagar, Mannarpuram, Kallukuzhi, Sundar Nagar and Renga Nagar.

Supply will be restored on Tuesday, a release from Corporation Commissioner B. Balachandran said.

Husband murders wife

Anbazhagan (35) allegedly murdered his wife Malarvizhi (22) by setting her afire in their house at Kattur near Lalgudi on Friday.

According to police, he was an alcoholic and used to quarrel with his wife.

A wordy duel broke out between them on Friday when Anbazhagan poured kerosene over Malarvizhi and allegedly set her afire. She died on the spot.

He suffered minor burns.

He was admitted to the Government Hospital at Lalgudi.

Term extension flayed

The Tiruchi district unit of the Periyar Dravida Kazhagam has condemned the extension of the term of the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal by another six months.

In a statement here, its president S.T. Rajendran said the Centre's decision has caused disappointment to farmers, especially in view of the fact that the proceedings of the tribunal had been dragging for 16 years.

Though Karnataka was currently releasing the surplus water, owing to heavy rains, there is no guarantee on whether the State would release Tamil Nadu's share of water over the next six months, he said.

Traders seek ban on sale of soft drinks

The Tiruchi district unit of the Tamil Nadu Vanigar Sangankalin Peravai has urged the Centre to ban the sale of soft drinks, which are found to have toxic contents. In a statement here, its secretary V. Govindarajulu said that recent studies had indicated that certain soft drinks had high pesticide and toxic content.

Mettur level

The water level at the Mettur dam stood at 108.70 feet against its full level of 120 feet on Friday.

The inflow was 11,396 cusecs and the outflow 18,000 cusecs.
