The explosion took place at exactly 2:30 in the afternoon, after which 40-storey buildings were reduced to rubble within nine seconds. At the same time, as soon as the building collapsed, a cloud of dust arose, which spread throughout the locality.

More than 37,00 kg of explosives were used to demolish these buildings 100 meters taller than Qutub Minar in Delhi. The Supreme Court had termed this construction in the middle of the Emerald Court Society complex as a violation of rules, after which the demolition was done.

More than 5,000 residents of the twin towers’ two nearest societies – Emerald Court and ATS Village – and their 150 to 200 pets were evicted by 7 am on Sunday. Around 3,000 vehicles were also removed from both the premises.

Edphis Engineering was entrusted with the task of safely demolishing the nearly 100 meter high twin tower. The company had joined hands with Jet Demolitions of South Africa for this risky work. He had to demolish both the towers in such a way that there was no damage to the residential buildings located just nine meters away.

As soon as the Twin Towers exploded, the entire building fell down in the blink of an eye. But the cloud of dust spread everywhere. At present, the work of reducing the dust has started. For this, already deployed smoke guns are being resorted to. Apart from this, water sprinkling is also being done.

Quick response team has reached to pick up C in D waste at the spot. The team expects that within 1 hour all the construction waste of the surrounding road will be cleared.
