A section of Kolkata's under-construction East West Metro service - a 16.6-km-long route that includes the country's first underwater train line - has met with what the chairman of the city's Metro Rail Corporation called an "unprecedented disaster". Although the underwater section, which runs for 520 metres under the Hooghly River in Kolkata has been completed, excavation work for underground tunnels in the Bowbazar neighbourhood hit an aquifer last week that resulted in flooding and cave-ins that forced the evacuation of more than 400 people from 52 homes in the area.
