A 132-year-old tunnel was discovered at the government-run JJ Hospital in Mumbai, an official said. The foundation stone of the 200-meter tunnel, built during the British era in India, mentions the year 1890, the official said. The building under which the tunnel was discovered was once used as a medical ward to treat women and children, the official told reporters. It was converted into a nursing school and is located in the hospital building. “We inspected the nursing school building after a complaint of water leakage. PWD engineers and security guards examined the building and found 1890 marked on the foundation stone,” the official said. “Some staffers told us there may be a basement, after which we made further inspections and discovered the tunnel,” he said.
