Early Times Report

Kulgam, Jan 14: A daily wager of the Power Development Department, who was electrocuted in Bogund area of south Kashmir's Kulgam district last Sunday, succumbed to his injuries this morning.
Official sources said that a lineman Shabir Ahmad Dar son of Muhammad Ismail Dar, a resident of Bogund was electrocuted and fell from a pole while repairing an electric line at his native village Bogund on January 9. The lineman was shifted to district hospital Kulgam from where he was referred to SKIMS Soura for further treatment.
However, six days after admission at the hospital, the lineman succumbed to his injuries this morning, an official said.
It’s in place to mention here that many linemen working on field during the past few days have received electric shocks due to alleged negligence of the higher ups. Sometimes power has been switched on when the linemen were repairing the poles and on many occasions lack of proper safety gear and equipment have led to them losing their lives.
Despite poor daily wagers suffering electric shocks the people handling the Power Department are unmoved and are not making arrangements for their safety. It seems people dying is a routine affair for them.
