Early Times Report

KUPWARA, July 10: A pall of gloom descended on Karnah today when three persons including father and son died of electrocution in Nard village of Karnah in Kupwara distrcit.
Reports said that three persons died and two others sustained injuries on Tuesday late night due to an electric short circuit in Nad village of Tangdhar in north Kashmir's Kupwara district.
Five persons suffered serious injuries when a high tension power supply line fell on a local power supply line causing an electric short circuit at Nad village of Tanghdar area in border district of Kupwara, sources informed early times.
Sources later on identified the deceased as Abdul Qadeer son of Yaqoob Chak (55), Tabir Ahmad Chak son of Abdul Qadeer Chak (26) and Qari Nawaz Ahmad Chak S/O Ali Asgar Chak (22), all residents of Nadd village of Tangdar area.
However the injured were identified as Mohd Irshad (30) son of Ali Asgar and Sakeena Begum (45) wife of Abdul Hamid Joo.
A senior police said that all the five persons were electrocuted after they tried to switch off their electric appliances in their houses.
All the injured were taken to SDH Tanghdar where three of them later succumbed and two others are undergoing treatment, the police official said.
The SHO said that an FIR under RPC section 304 A has been registered against PDD for their negligence, adding the investigations have been initiated and those responsible shall be booked as warranted under law.
The locals said that the Power Development Department (PDD) has failed to install iron electric poles in the areas, there are decades old wooden poles in some of the areas of Karnah.
The PDD has failed to repair low as well as high tension transmission lines, as they have never taken their work seriously, due to which we lost precious lives today, said Nisar Ahmad, a local resident of Karnah.
He said that our area has been completely ignored by the government at all fronts as we are not part of this state, if the central government has allocated for the betterment of tribal people, why government has failed to utilized them in a proper way. We demand a thorough probe and investigations against PDD for taking precious lives of three persons, and government must sanction ex-gratia relief for the next of kins (NoKs) at the earliest, said locals of the Karnah area.
