Raigarh: Three employees of Chhattisgarh Electricity Board, including an assistant engineer, were on Saturday booked by police for alleged negligence in connection with the death of a trainee lineman in 2012.
"Assistant Engineer Yogesh Patel, Assistant A Dharmadas and Line Assistant SS Akhtar have been booked under sections 304 (A) (causing death by negligence), and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of Indian Penal Code in connection with the death of a trainee Lineman Vikas Bharadwaj," Raigadh SP (City) Satyendra Pandeya told reporters here.
