Heavy downpour cut off Electronic City, one of the major software hubs of India’s tech capital, Bangalore.  

The city received an average 42 mm of rainfall Between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m on Thursday. 

Bommanahalli and Electronics City received the first heavy showers around noon, while the northern area received heavy rains by 3 pm.

The rain flooded the streets and marooned Electronic City. The engineers, who took the elevated flyover, got struck in the traffic jam at nearby areas such as Madiwala. 

The harassed commuters took to social media to express their ire at the government, which had failed to provide good infrastructure for the city. 

Officials said the ongoing excavation work for metro had blocked the water outlets and led to the flooding of the streets.
