According to a press note issued by one Cipakhuyi Rhakho, who said he was an eyewitness to the incident, the lady who was on her way towards the PHQ from town area, stopped to pick some plants. That was when she was electrocuted,  suspected to be because of the unfenced mini transformer located nearby.
