The Electricity Corporation vigilance team raided around 50-60 homes with the police team in the Sethpur area near the Canal on Monday. During the raid, the team caught around 19 homes with faulty and tampered electricity wires. In total, penalty of around 9 lakh rupees has been imposed. This action was taken on the instructions of DSP Vigilance Jitesh Malhotra. The team also had SDO Manoj Kumar, Vinod Agrawal and JE Rohtash while raiding the homes.
During the operation, there was a stir in the surrounding area. Many people fled the house after closing the house trying to save them from the sudden raids conducted in the area. DSP Vigilance Jitesh Malhotra said that these consumers have been fined about Rs 9 lakh. The campaign against power theft will continue even further and we would try to catch more culprits like them and will fine them accordingly.
