Sad news coming from ward no. 68 Mehta Mohalla Lower Ratnuchak where a cow died due to electric shock from an electric pole. Earlier also an animal died by coming in contact with the same pole.
While talking to the media the cow’s owner said “the cow came to drink water near the pole and in a few seconds it fell. On informing the PDD workers came to check and found that few live words were not properly insulated because of which the pole was covered with electric current “. The owner also complained that “this ward comes under the jurisdiction of JMC and it was the duty of JMC to pick the dead animal but no person from JMC came to pick the animal. We only called a few people and paid 1200 rules to get the animal picked. Then what’s the fun of JMC”.
A local said “the serviceman of this area has not done his duty properly. Many live wires are not covered properly. A few days back also a goat died by coming in contact with the pole. The area remains crowded as people pass by this pole and we have also informed the Corporator of the area but he hasn’t come to review the situation”.
