Up to 10 million people are struggling without water in India’s captial after protestors cut off a key water supply.
The Munak canal, which supplies about three fifths of the water to Delhi’s population of 16 million, was sabotaged by protesters angry at caste job quotas.
The Indian Army has since seized control of the canal to try and secure the water supply.
Keshav Chandra, head of Delhi’s water board, told the BBC it would take “three to four days” before normal supplies resumed to affected areas.
All Delhi’s schools have been closed because of the water crisis.
There have been three days of riots as a result of caste issues in Delhi with 16 people killed and hundreds hurt.
