Ten Kanwariyas electrocuted in DJ van in Cooch Behar

COOCH BEHAR, August 1: Ten Kanwariyas were electrocuted in Cooch Behar in Bengal on Sunday night. The yatris, hailing from Sitalkuchi, were travelling to Jalpesh in a van when the accident took place.

The driver fled the place. Twenty seven people have been hospitalised. It is suspected that the accident took place because of the DJ system placed in the back of the van. The passengers, it is believed, came into direct contact with live wires from the generator. The victims' kin have been informed of the accident. The vehicle has been seized.

The injured were brought to Changrabandha public health centre from where 16 of 27 passengers were referred to Jalpaiguri hospital.

The incident took place at Dharla Bridge under Mekhliganj Police Station area in Bengal.

"At around midnight, an incident took place at Dharla Bridge under Mekhliganj Police Station, where a pick-up van carrying Kanwariyas on its way to Jalpesh got electrocuted. As per the preliminary inquiry, it appears that the incident took place due to wiring of the generator of the DJ system which was fitted in the back of the vehicle," Mathabhanga Additional Superintendent of Police Amit Varma told India Today.
