Chief minister Sheila Dikshit on Tuesday said her government has not "ignored" the reports about the presence of a drug-resistant superbug in the capital's public water supply. She, however, insisted that it was totally safe.

"We are collecting our own reports... The water being supplied by DJB is totally safe," she said.

Sources said CM has asked the Delhi Jal Board to regularly take samples from various areas of the city and test it at designated laboratories.

The DJB has already dispelled concerns following the report and said the water being supplied by the agency was "safe" for drinking.
