Man succumbs to electric shock injuries

A 25-year-old man suffered an electric shock and succumbed to injuries at a private hospital in Hebbal on Wednesday.

The victim, Syed Imran, was a resident of 4th main Jayanagar, Byrasandra. He sustained the electric shock while he was doing fabrication welding work at an under-construction building in Amruthahalli ‘B’ Sector on May 8.

Victim’s brother Syed Afroz (31), in his complaint to the Amruthahalli police, stated his brother was doing fabrication work for contractor Rashid at one Waseem’s building. Around 2 pm, Imran finished his work on the fourth floor, and while he was pulling the welding equipment wire from the ground floor it came in contact with a high-tension wire, and he sustained the electric shock. Imran was soon shifted to the Baptist Hospital, where he underwent treatment for a week. But on May 15, he succumbed to injuries, the police said. The police have booked the contractor Rashid for not providing any safety gear to Imran and also held him culpable for criminal negligence leading to the victim’s death. The police have booked Rashid under IPC Section 304-A.
