Protest over electrocution death in SGH


Share post:

TURA, Aug 30: Combined groups from South Garo Hills on Tuesday, began their two-day sit-in protest against the MeECL in Nongalbibra after district authorities failed to take action over the recent electrocution death of a woman from the district.
The unfortunate incident took place around 11 am on August 18 at Nengbrek Gittim under Nongalbibra where one Suritha N Sangma lost her life. The victim reportedly came into contact with the low lying 11 KV line which connects Nongalbibra to Darang Boldak leading to her electrocution and subsequent death.
Earlier, the combined groups had submitted a complaint to the deputy commissioner demanding strong action against those responsible for the alleged negligence which led to the incident. However, failure of the district administration to initiate action so far compelled the groups comprising Nongalbibra circle of FKJGP, GSU and others to launch the agitation on Tuesday.
The sit-in is to be resumed on Wednesday and the groups have informed that they would begin another round of protest, the day after, if nothing is done with regard to their demands.
