The AEE Electric Sub-Division, Hazuri Bagh, Srinagar however submitted a written statement dated 16.10.2018 wherein he submitted that owner of M/S Fancy Crockery Shop is taking advantage of the closeness of conductor and is using electricity illegally during late hours in the evening when field staff is off duty.
