Rural Electrification Board issued a notification to cut the branches of trees those which extended to the main line of the electricity at Betagi under Barguna district on January 27 and accordingly all users including the youth Rimon aged 15 years went to do his own duty. Villagers alleged the notification unveiled that during the work the live line should be stopped but the men in electricity didn’t stop and the boy Rimon wrapped with live main line while he was cutting the branches. Within short span of time he has been burnt and fell down on the ground and was sent him to Barisal Medical College Hospital for instant recovery. However the injuries are so severe that it is not curable within few days. The attendants and on duty doctor said it take many days and also takes a lot of money for full cure.
Rimon is an inhabitant of Chopkhali village under Hosenabad union of Betagi upazila.

For 9 days together, his expenses were met by the neighbors but at the case of massive operation it takes a big amount to treat him successfully. On the very day January 27, the Rural Electrification Board snapped 4 meters stopping electricity connection to 42 houses. And all on a sudden without further notification they resumed electricity supply on January 28 to the houses that caused so big loss to a life, the locals alleged.
