Electric poles collapse at B R Hills; none hurt

1 min read

Chamarajanagar: Two electric poles came down crashing at B R Hills in Yalandur on August 16. The incident was reported around 4 pm, on the stairs leading to the temple atop the hill.

Nobody was moving around at that time, which prevented what would have led to casualty. A branch of a tree fell on the electric line, leading to the collapse of the two poles. 

Following the demand to supply power to the temple of the presiding God at the shrine, the Chamundeshwari Electricity Supply Corporation Limited ( Cesc) engineers had taken up the works to install a feeder line.

However, according to locals the works were completed in a hasty manner without taking any concrete steps.

The branches of the trees touching the electric line were not pruned and the bottom of the pole was not strengthened with concrete, alleged temple workers association president Kantharaju.
