New Delhi:

The Supertech twin towers in Noida were demolished today bringing an end to a nine-year-long legal battle. The high structures- close to 100 meters tall were taller than Delhi’s iconic Qutub Minar- were reduced to rubble in seconds using a ‘controlled implosion’ to ensure minimal damage to the surroundings.
