Electrocuted


IMPHAL, Feb 10: One lineman of MSPDCL has been killed after he came into contact with a HT power line at Chahmol village, Tengnoupal district.
Meanwhile, KSO Tengnoupal has threatened to block Imphal-Moreh highway indefinitely from February 12 midnight in case the Government fails to look into the matter within the next two days.
Speaking to media persons at Kuki Inn here this evening, KSO Tengnoupal president Thangboi Lhungdim said that MSPDCL lineman Mangginlal Gangte (34) was electrocuted by a HT power line at Chahmol village at around 4.30 pm yesterday.
Mangginlal is survived by a pregnant wife and a three year old daughter.
He was working under one SO of MSPDCL. He climbed up an electric pole after shutting down power supply in the area. But it mysteriously turned out that the HT power line was live, Thangboi Lhungdim said.
While the corpse is still lying at JNIMS mortuary, KSO Tengnoupal and family members of Mangginlal talked with MSPDCL officials but no understanding could be reached, Thangboi said.
As such, Imphal-Moreh highway would be blocked from February 12 midnight and the corpse of the deceased lineman would not be claimed in case the State Government does not look into the matter with due seriousness within the next two days, he added.
