Hindon Water Level Rises, Leaving Approximately 350 Vehicles Submerged in Noida

Unauthorised Dump Yard Submerges 350 Cars in Hindon River Floodplain

The rise in the water level of the Hindon River has led to around 350 cars being submerged in the Ecotech-3 area of Gautam Buddha Nagar. These cars were part of an unauthorized dump yard belonging to a private company situated in the floodplain of the Hindon, specifically in Purana Sutiana village.

District Magistrate Manish Kumar Verma revealed that despite repeated warnings, the private company failed to remove the vehicles parked in the submergence area. The dump yard was reportedly owned by a person named Satpal, and it had a boundary wall, with Dinesh Yadav being its caretaker.

Authorities stated that the damaged cars in the yard were associated with the ride-hailing company Ola. According to police information, these vehicles were old and had been recovered during the Covid-19 lockdown but were currently not in use.

Fortunately, the rise in the water level did not affect normal life or result in any loss of life. However, officials are closely monitoring the situation as the water level of the Hindon is expected to rise further due to heavy rainfall in Saharanpur, the river’s origin point. Necessary actions are being taken to address the situation, including contacting the management members of Ola company to vacate the yard.
