The deceased is identified as Felix Monteiro (39), a resident of Karodi in Karopady village. He is survived by his mother, two brothers and two sisters.

Felix was a contract worker of Mescom. He had cut off the line connection by himself after which he climbed the transformer. Although he had switched off the high-tension line, one of the cables was still live. The deceased failed to notice this and when he attempted to install the head fuse, he was electrocuted. The electric shock hurled the deceased on to the ground and though he was rushed to the hospital, he had already breathed his last, inform the locals.
