Remarkably, in the incident place a 11 KV naked electricity wire seen passing over to the nearby Bihali Reserve forest from the Balijan Reserve Forest. The height of the naked electricity wire is found only to be about four and half feet, showing the sheer negligence of the authority concerned at the time of its installation. Because, an electricity power line should be on a considerable height, so that no one easily come in contact with it.
