Refuting the claim, Assistant Executive Engineer Charar-e-Sharif Ghulam Qadir told the news agency Kashmir News Trust that the deceased was not an employee of the department. He said there are no records about the deceased in the department.

“There is a group of people who claim to work as need-based workers in the Power Development Department but actually the department doesn’t own them. We had repeatedly requested such people not to put their lives in danger and don’t waste their time and energy,” he added. [KNT]
