Similar Incident Reported In Gujarat Recently

Similarly, another incident of electrocution took place recently in Surat's Dindoli area, involving two teenage brothers.

Shivam Yadav (13) and Shiva Yadav (15) were electrocuted while cleaning their school's terrace on January 16, reportedly under the supervision of their teacher, Khunna Tiwari.

The brothers were clearing kites and threads from the terrace when Shiva accidentally came into contact with a live wire, resulting in severe electric shock. In a brave attempt to save his sibling, Shivam also suffered electrocution.

One Among Them Suffered 65% Burns

Both brothers were swiftly taken to the Surat Municipal Corporation-run SMIMER hospital. Shiva sustained significant burn injuries, with approximately 65% burns, resulting in transfer to a private hospital in Vesu for specialised care. Fortunately, Shivam's condition was reported as stable.

The tragic incident sparked outrage among the victims' family members, who have squarely blamed the school authorities and teacher for negligence. "We send our children to school to study, not to clean their premises," stated Parmeshwar Yadav, the boys' father. "The school should not be assigning such dangerous tasks to children," he added.
