The incident took place on Saturday in Katai area of Kaneri village under Bhiwandi township when the victim, Tukaram Pawar, along with other staff of the power firm went there to take action against those who had not paid their electricity bills, an official from Nizampura police station said.

A group of 10-15 villagers allegedly beat up the power firm staffers severely and prevented them from cutting their electricity supply, he said.

The police official said they were waiting for the postmortem report to take further action into the case.

Meanwhile, the victim’s son alleged lapses on part of the power company, leading to his father’s death.

However, the power firm’s public relations officer Chetan Bijlani told reporters that it was a usual drive against defaulters, hence police protection was not sought for it.

“In case of special drives, we seek police protection,” he said.
