With toxic foam spilling over to the main artery, commuters had a tough time negotiating traffic for last couple of weeks, said the Indian media reports.

"In fact, the foam is entering helmets, and coming in contact with the skin", he added. In February, Bellandur lake, the city's largest water body, caught fire and it took almost four hours to put it out. Also the Karnataka Government is racing against time to clean up the Bellandur.
