ANANTAPUR: Two farmers, father and son, were electrocuted at Chikkepalli village of Pedda Pappur mandal in the district on Tuesday afternoon. The two died on the spot.

According to the information reaching here, the father and son duo — Nagi Reddy (52) and Suryanarayana Reddy (35) — were trying to lift and tie a power extension cable connected from their house to the adjacent cattle shed.

They were not aware of the fact that the supporting GI (galvanised iron) wire to the power cable was also passing electricity due to earthing on one end of it.

Death of the two earning members left the family in deep shock. Suryanarayana Reddy was the only son of Nagi Reddy.
