Hyderabad: Tragedy struck at Padmarao Nagar Park in Secunderabad early on Friday morning, when a man died from an electric shock while on his morning walk. The victim, Pradeep (43), was walking along the park’s walking track when a high-tension wire broke and fell onto the track. Unfortunately, Pradeep didn’t notice the wire and was electrocuted on the spot.

The incident has left locals and Pradeep’s family in shock and disbelief. The victim, who hailed from Parsigutta Babuji Nagar, was a regular at the park and was well-known in the community. Upon hearing the news of his death, his family members, friends, and fellow park-goers rushed to the scene to express their grief.

As news of the incident spread, anger and frustration began to mount in the community. Many residents accused park officials and the electricity department of negligence and demanded justice for the victim. They questioned how a high-tension wire could break and fall on a walking track.

In response to the incident, Talasani Srinivas Yadav, the State Minister of Animal Husbandry, Fisheries and Dairy Development and Cinematography, expressed his condolences to Pradeep’s family and promised to take action. The minister has already discussed the matter with senior officials of the power department and pledged to launch a thorough investigation into the incident. He also promised to provide financial assistance to Pradeep’s family.

Unseasonal Rainfall:

Unseasonal rains continues in Telangana, with scattered thunderstorms expected throughout the state. The north and central regions of Telangana have better chances of rainfall, while Hyderabad is also experiencing scattered thunderstorms, yet lesser in intensity than yesterday.

Although residents of Telangana were surprised and delighted to receive relief from the first spell of summer in the region, hailstorms reported in some parts of the state disrupted traffic flow in Zaheerabad town for about half an hour. Meanwhile, Marpalle village in Vikarabad became a stunning white-covered location during heavy hail showers.

The change in weather, however, brought sadness to some as it caused extensive crop damage. Sugarcane and jowar crops, as well as vegetable farms, were destroyed in the storm, and there were reports of paddy crop damage in Siddipet and Medak. The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has also issued a yellow alert in many districts of Telangana for the upcoming three days, with thunderstorms likely to rain down on parts of Telangana from March 17 to 19.
