    Mosquito menace has overwhelmed the national capital as well as surrounding areas with a spurt in vector-borne diseases like Chikungunya rash, malaria and more during this monsoon season and efforts are on full swing to bring it under control. Stepping into the good fight are the Indian Railways, one of the largest conglomerates in the world, with their aptly named 'Mosquito Terminator'. This is a special train started by the Northern Railway with the express intention of spraying insecticide on water bodies along the tracks in Delhi area and thereby help halt mosquito breeding.

    The reason why the 'Mosquito Terminator' is being deployed in these areas is because they are inaccessible and allow the insects to breed without getting disturbed. (Twitter)

    For this drive Northern Railway and the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) have come together. According to officials the sprayers on the train are very powerful and they can sanitise areas that are as far as 50-60 metres from the tracks and that too in quick time. (PTI)
