The bizarre incident took place near the Mankameshwar temple, an area which has very old grocery traders' establishments. Thousands of rats, burrowing underground for years reportedly were responsible for weakening the building's foundation. The rat population of the area, which has always been high, exploded so much in recent years that the rodents have been burrowing under houses, damaging sewage and pipelines. Officials fear that the foundation of dozens of houses have been weakened.
