Hyderabad: The Water Board booked over 30 criminal cases against customers who have “re-opened” their disconnected water supply connections illegally in different O&M divisions in the last three months. 
 
“Thirty cases were booked and six persons were arrested,” said P.S.

However, some of the customers, with the help of plumbers, are reconnecting the pipelines, which is illegal.
