Guwahati, May 30: Residents of a rented locality in Six Mile, VIP Road, Guwahati, are gripped by fear following a disturbing incident involving the local electricity department. On Monday morning, a tree fell and snapped electric wires, leaving the entire area, including the house and its surroundings, dangerously electrified. This incident has jeopardized the safety of 10-15 tenants who have been living in constant fear for three days.

Despite repeated calls for help to the Assam Power Distribution Company Limited (APDCL), the residents allege that the electricity department failed to respond promptly. When APDCL officials finally arrived on Wednesday, two days after the incident, they left without addressing the issue, citing the need for an official application to be submitted to divisional authorities before any action could be taken.

One of the distressed tenants voiced their frustration, stating, “The tree fell on Monday, and we have tried to inform the APDCL authorities, but they have not responded. Today, they came after two days but asked us to submit an application. We are living under a real threat due to the electrified surroundings and fear for our lives. We have been trying to connect with the concerned APDCL authorities for the last two days, and although they arrived today, they insisted on an application first.”

This incident has incited outrage among the residents, who are demanding immediate intervention from the electricity department to ensure their safety. The apparent negligence and bureaucratic delays have left the tenants feeling abandoned and exposed to serious danger.
