Three women receive burn injuries as power cable falls on them


LARKANA: Three women were burnt when 11,000 KV electricity lines fell over them in Alhando Mirbahar village on Tuesday.

They were identified as the mother of 10, Hasina wife of Mithal Mirbahar, mother of eight children Shahmiran wife of Pathan Mirbahar, and mother of two, Moomal wife of Mor Mirbahar.

They were rushed to the Burns Ward of Chandka Medical College Hospital.

Villagers said that high tension electricity lines pass over their houses for which they have constantly been informing Sukkur Electric Power Company (SEPCO) officers to remove to prevent any damage but they conveniently ignore poor people.

They demanded the Water and Power Ministry to take notice of the issue and order the removal of power lines forthwith to save precious lives.
