Iffath Fathima ByExpress News ServiceBENGALURU: While many lakes in the city are already on the verge of extinction, Vengaiah Lake in KR Puram is still crying for attention.
According to local residents, nauseating odour due to the sewage water entering the lake makes it tough for residents to spend time near the lake, even for a minute.
The lake was handed over to the Karnataka forest department (KFD) in 2018 by the Lake Development Authority (LDA).
