An aluminium scale carried by Nath in his hands came in contact with a high power cable above the embankment and he suffered an electric shock. Nath was rushed to North Lakhimpur Civil Hospital where he was declared brought dead.

It�s worth mentioning that the power cables crisscrossing the riverine areas of Lakhimpur have been lying low posing serious threats to local residents.
