A Power department lineman, on routine maintenance duty, sustained serious burn injuries after he came in contact with high power line Thursday morning near Duncan Basti Tiniali, Dimapur. 

According to department officials, the lineman was working on the 11kv line (transformer) while another lineman was at work on the Kashiram feeder line at a different location.

The incident took place, when the power was accidentally charged back after the Kashiram feeder line was restored. 

One of his colleague on duty immediately called the office to cut off the power. 

Passersby rushed to pull out the lineman as he was stuck. 

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital with burn injuries, the official said.
