One of the locals alleged, ” No steps were taken by the district administration towards the maintenance of pure drinking water supply to around 3,000 households in the area despite the presence of an overhead water tank, pump house, and the connectivity of half of the households with drinking water pipeline. “

Chief medical officer ( CMO ) Dr. Alok Kumar observed that in the complete lack of the government water supply for drinking in the area, the people were using the contaminated water from hand pumps having a shallow bore of merely 40 to 50 feet. ” A polluted and dirty water body stretched a kilometer’s length just adjacent to the town area could be the prime source of the drinking water’s contamination leading to the bacteria-borne fever or typhoid, ” the CMO said.
