Rats gnawing down the 150-year-old Town Hall in Delhi

DELHI

Large rats have been gnawing away at the 150-year-old Town Hall building in Chandni Chowk and years of neglect have left the heritage structure compromised, local municipal councillors said.

The building was the home of the erstwhile unified Municipal Corporation of Delhi till 2009, when the municipality moved to the Civic Centre near Connaught Place.

The dilapidated condition of the heritage structure was brought up in the North Delhi Municipal Corporation’s Standing Committee on Wednesday by Congress councillors, who alleged the building was in danger.
