A huge water pipe was pierced to topple the Polduwa Bridge

The water supply board says that the reason for the disconnection of water supply to many areas of Colombo yesterday is a sabotage. It is reported that a group of people removed a nail from a connector in the main pipe that carries water from the main water pumping station in Ambatale to the Jubilee pillar, causing a huge water leak and a complaint has already been made to the police.

The water supply board says that 33 of the 48 nails in the connector that connected the two parts of the water pipe had been removed. If the pipe had been disconnected, as a result of that the Polduwa bridge would also have come loose.
