Old sewer lines within the railway property were attributed to the mess.  Authorities claimed that a missing link between the railway’s sewer links and the MCC main sewer line was the reason.

While sewage was overflowing off and on in small quantities, it again covered the entrance of the station on oct 7, Friday morning.

Sources said that the work to connect the lines with the main sewer line was  at a slow pace due to the presence of a host of utility lines in the area.

A senior engineer of the Southern Railway told media  that the work connecting railway sewer lines with the MCC lines was successfully completed by Oct 7 evening.
