Five children in Barawafat procession in Bahraich electrocuted

LUCKNOW, Oct 10: Six people, including five children were electrocuted and two others suffered injuries when an iron pole attached to a cart used in a religious procession touched an overhead high tension live wire in Nanpara of Bahraich district on Sunday.

The incident took place around 4 am in Masupur village in Nanpara. Several more were also injured when a stampede followed the mishap. The Barawafat procession was held by Muslims to celebrate the birthday of Prophet Muhammad. The day is also called Barawafat.

The deceased have been identified as Sufian (12), Ilyas (16), Tabrez (16), Arafat (10), Ashraf Ali (30) - all residents of Bhaggadwa in Nanpara - and Shafiq (12) from Malhipur in Shravasti district.

The relatives of the victims have told police that they do not want post-mortem examination of the bodies as they do not blame anyone for the accident.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has directed officials concerned to ensure that the injured get necessary medical treatment.
