Chairman PDF Hakeem Yaseen has expressed grief over the death of Numberdar of Macho Beerwa, Shabir Ahmed Malik, who died of electrocution.
In a statement issued to KNS, Hakeem Yaseen while conveying his sympathies to the bereaved family, demanded a probe into the death of Malik.
He said the concerned PDD field officials should be held responsible for the unfortunate incident.
He said due to non availability of the field staff on duty, the Numberdar was forced to see the power transformer in a bid to restore power supply to his village, which became the cause of his instant death. He also demanded ex gratia relief to the bereaved family and government job to the next of kin of the deceased.
