JE left work and fled to Ballia.
Our Engineer Sunil Kumar told that at the same time JE TP Nagar went to home district Ballia instead of giving his CUG number to the SSO at the sub-centre without permission, instead of attending the breakdown. While negligent in his work, the junior engineer ran away from there. Therefore, preparations are being made to take action against them as well. Meerut Mall’s power also failed on the 11 KV Meerut Mall feeder connected to 33 KV sub-station TP Nagar. LT cable was broken by Rapid Metro by drilling without permission.
