Faulty Service-line’ Leaves 2 Livestock Animals Dead in North Kashmir

In Muqam-i-Shahwali village, Kupwara, a tragic incident occurred on Sunday afternoon as two livestock animals, including a valuable milk-producing cow and a bull, were electrocuted due to a faulty service-line. The incident, which took place at Davood Colony, has left the owners devastated, causing substantial financial loss. Locals are deeply aggrieved and have expressed their frustration, alleging negligence on the part of the Power Development Department (PDD).

Reports suggest that despite repeated complaints from the villagers about the faulty service-line, no action was taken by the authorities. This lack of response has fueled resentment among the residents, who feel their genuine concerns have been ignored. They emphasize that they had alerted the authorities multiple times, highlighting the potential dangers posed by the faulty infrastructure.

The locals fear that such negligence could have dire consequences, not only for their livestock but also for human lives. They point out that the lethargic approach of the PDD has put everyone in the vicinity at risk. Despite previous representations made to the department, no steps were taken to address the issue, further exacerbating the frustration of the community.

Calling upon the PDD to take immediate action, the villagers are urging authorities to assess and repair the faulty service-line without delay. They stress the importance of preventive measures to avoid similar tragedies in the future. The incident serves as a grim reminder of the critical need for efficient infrastructure maintenance and prompt response to community concerns.

It underscores the importance of accountability and responsiveness on the part of government departments entrusted with public safety. The tragic loss of livestock animals highlights the urgency of addressing infrastructure issues promptly to prevent further harm. The community’s plea for action resonates with the broader imperative of ensuring the safety and well-being of all citizens.
