Farmer electrocuted in cane field

Guruswamy (40) son of Gurulingappa, resident of Gorur in the taluk is that unfortunate. Gorur is located on the outskirts of the city.

Guruswamy was passing through a sugar cane field belonging to Swamappa of the same village, when he suffered an electric shock and succumbed to it. Swamappa had allegedly drawn power lines on the fence to protect the crop from wild animals.

As the news of Guruswamy’s death spread like a wildfire, villagers staged a road block on Gorur-Mysore road. South police who rushed to the spot made a futile bid to convince them. When the agitators unrelented, they arrested four among them in lead of the agitation. However, they were released on bail later.

A case has been registered.
