Noida, Aug 13 (PTI) The process for rigging Supertech's illegal twin towers in Noida with explosives started Saturday, with the nearly 100-metre-all structures set to be demolished on August 28, officials said.

More than 3,500 kg of explosive will be filled in around 9,400 holes drilled in the columns and shears of the skeletal structures of the twin towers which will be razed to the ground. The first batch of explosives reached the site in Noida's Sector 93A around 9 am amid tight police security, the officials said.

The charging process--rigging of skeletal structures with explosives--will take around 15 days, they said.
