This is the largest — and one of five — water treatment plants which are part of the country’s largest public-private partnership (PPP) project in urban water supply. In 2012 Orange City Water (OCW), a 50:50 joint venture between Veolia Water India, the local arm of a French company, and Nagpur-based Vishwaraj Environment, was awarded a 25-year concession by the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) to upgrade and maintain the city’s water pipelines and supply pressurised water 24X7 to a population of 2.7 million and collect tariffs on behalf of the NMC.

The Hong Kong police were called to the airport after security officers found seven pieces of used ammunition in the luggage of the suspect, who was about to leave Hong Kong.

Police sources also confirmed the seized shells were used by frontline officers in fiery clashes with radical anti-government protesters. The force urged members of the public not to pick up used ammunition left on the streets.
