Reportedly, the hefty power bill of Rs 21.86 lakh dates to the days of 2019. It was a billed to the residence of a 65-years-old elderly woman who has been living alone in a 60sq m house in Sant Nagar. Being shocked by the huge amount, she had been running from pillar to post of the Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (UHBVN) for over three years for getting her bill corrected, however, to no avail.

After repeated attempts to bring the concern to the notice of authorities, she tried to go the quirky way. Identified as Suman Devi, she protested against the UHBVN by gathering people to play drums and share sweets, on Tuesday.
