Nagpur: In an unsavoury incident that sparked outrage, Shiv Sena activists abused and thrashed MSEDCL employee who had gone to Prakash Nagar Dipti Signal area for recovery of pending power dues from defaulting consumers. The video of the incident has also gone viral.
The MSEDCL employee who was victim of the Shiv Sena goondaism has been identified as Tarasingh Atalsingh Rathod, resident of Plot No. 15, Patil Layout, Swavalambi Nagar. Rathod works in MSEDCL as Chief Technician.
According to reports, a squad of MSEDCL, led by Rathod, had gone to Prakash Nagar Dipti Signal locality coming under Kalamna police area around 1 pm on Thursday, February 13, for recovery of pending power bills.
A deafulter named Dayanand Vaikunthlal Nirmalkar (32) staying in the area was asked by Rathod to clear the electricity bills pending since the past one year. Enraged by the diktat of Rathod, Nirmalkar called a Shiv Sena activist Rakesh Bharti (40), resident of Pardi. Thereafter, both Dayanand Nirmalkar and Rakesh Bharti hurled abuses and bashed up Rathod severely and also obstructed his official duty.
