HUBBALLI: Staff at a police station in Hosapete were surprised Saturday night when only their station was without power, while the rest of the town was fully lit. It took them some time to realize that some troublemakers within the Gulbarga Electric Supply Company Ltd (GESCOM) had cut off the power supply to them.

The police were unaware that the station’s power had been cut off because the inverter was fully charged and the station was running smoothly. Some of them came out and saw that someone had removed the electrical connection. But there was a bit of history behind the stuffing. Earlier, some cops had warned Gescom officials against playing loud music during the Ganesha procession.

Power restored after intervention by minister and senior officials

During an argument, the police seized the tractor carrying the DJ sets. This enraged Gescom staff members, who gathered outside the police station. “Within an hour, the electrical connection to the station was cut.

He was sure someone from Gescom who knew how to cut the wire had done the wrongdoing,” a police officer said. As the situation escalated, Minister Anand Singh and senior officials had to arrive near the station and appease both sides.

“Power was restored after their intervention,” the official said. A senior Vijayanagar police officer said, “I arrested Gescom staff for cutting off the power. Both departments work for the government and there has to be cooperation. No formal complaint has been registered.
