Hisar: A shepherd was killed after he was struck by lightning while sleeping in a field in Petwar village here, the police said today.
The victim was identified as Ramzan, a resident of Rajasthan's Jaisalmer district.
It started raining last night while Ramzan was sleeping in the field and a thunderbolt struck the area, police said.
He was hit by lightning and died on the spot, they added.
Ramzan had come to Haryana along with a few other shepherds three months back as water scarcity in Rajasthan made grazing sheep difficult.
