Bengaluru: As heavy rains continued to lash several parts of India, one city was witness to a strange sight - people were seen trying to catch fish with fishing nets on Bengaluru's Ring road.

Water from some of city's lakes flooded streets of the IT-hub and locals were captured fishing on the roads with a huge orange net. A Twitter user posted a picture of the 'unbelievable' sight on the micro-blogging site.

Fishing.

Heavy-water logging due to the incessant rains led to major traffic jams across the city. Several main roads like the Hosur Main Road, NICE roads junction were flooded due to Thursday's showers.

Many residential areas also suffered severe water-logging and local administration has launched rescue operations to help stranded citizens.

 

Karnataka Fire & Emergency service personnel deployed boats to rescue locals from the flooded locality of Kodichikkanhalli.

The scenes were compared to Gurgaon, which is also experiencing a similar plight, with crippling road jams that have brought life to a grinding halt for many.

The Delhi-Gurgaon expressway was completely choked and the city Police Commissioner Navdeep Virk had to step out on the streets to take stock of the situation.
