Karnataka State Electricity Board (KSEB) has been erecting High-Tension lines between Madhugiri and Pavagada in Tumkur district. These power-lines pass through Madakasira mandal in Andhra Pradesh.
On Sunday, A Farmer identified as K Nabirasool (65) and his son Vannor Saheb demanding compensation from KSEB as the high-tension wires were passing through their land. But, The Contractor didn’t pay heed to them at all.
Hence, The Father-Son staged a protests by hanging on the high-tension wire. They both suffered serious injuries after falling from a height of 20 feet and got admitted in the Hindupur hospital.
Minister Palle Raghunatha Reddy made it clear nobody would be tolerated if farmers were harassed. He assured necessary compensation from KSEB to the farmers.
