A suicide and a blackout

AURANGABAD MAY 29. A man who felt humiliated at not being invited to his niece's wedding ended his life by touching a high-voltage live wire here yesterday. Power supply to the city was disrupted for some three-and-a-half hours.

When Sheshrao Gophane failed to get an invitation to the wedding, he got drunk and climbed the 132 KV double circuit electric tower that controls the power lines on the Padegaon-Hursul section, police said. He was electrocuted when he touched a live wire.— UNI
