New Delhi: Power cut along with the rising price of electricity is a regular feature in India
A recent incident in Noida sent shockwaves to the city as well as the electricity department, when an electricity department official was attacked by acid over long power cuts and increased bill.
According to reports available, a man came to the electricity office and started complaining about power cuts and over-rated electricity bill to the clerk present there.
After complaining, the accused suddenly threw aid on the clerk and started beating him with a laathi, and absconded from the scene before the other officials could catch him.
Although the victim was taken to a private hospital, his condition is still critical. According to the doctors, the victim has a serious infection in his eyes because of the acid attack, along with injuries in his head and other parts of the body.
The victim is admitted in the I.C.U.
While the case has been reported to the police, they have started investigating it, but they still don't have any clue about the culprit.
