Eleven people have been killed in toilet-related accidents in Mumbai since 2013. This is not an accident but a homicide.

On April 28, at 6:30 am, Babubhai Devji (40) and Loben Jethwa (42) went to the public toilet at MHADA’s Saisdan Chali in Bhandup. Suddenly the ground of that toilet eroded; Beneath it was an 8-foot-deep abyss filled to the brim. Babubhai and Loben both fell into the pit filled with human excrement. Firefighters and the National Disaster Response Force took seven hours to retrieve the bodies.
