WESCO indulge in illegal action with trespassers

An owner of house at Fatak, Sambalpur Asharani Mishra, was launched a complaint against electric hijackers. Asharani shocked to see that two illegal trespassers into her house were using electricity illegally .In a complaint to the SDO of the concerned electrical sub-division of WESCO, Asharani wanted immediate disconnection of the illegal line and corresponding actions against the related persons. But to her surprise and shock, to neither, the JE to whom the complaint was addressed, nor the SDO concerned to whom copy of the complaint was given, this was a matter to attention.

Asharani Mishra, in her complaint before the Chairman of WESCO filed that she wanted her house to be free from illegal power connection failing which she would seek prevention in appropriate courts and make WESCO liable for the damage. The illegal hook was then removed, but despite Asharani Mishra having named the illegal users of hook to drag energy into her house, no action was taken against the hijackers of electricity. Yet, to her surprise, the SDO gave her alarming threats over phone that if any hooking is found in future; she shall be prosecuted against for the same.Asharani Mishra immediately informed the WESCO Chairman of this telephonic threat in her communication.

 To her phobia, she found that illegal connections are given to the trespassers by the WESCO officials on permanent basis devoid any meter and inspection of wiring. This being a potential threat to safety of her house, as she contacted the area JE, she was informed that, he had to give the connections under orders of Behera, the SDO as well as of the area Executive Engineer Bibhudendu Padhi. This information was to her hand on 28th of December 2011 and instantly she apprised the WESCO CEO of this illegality in her written complaint. But yet, no action is taken against the illegal users of energy and their collaborators in WESCO.The WESCO chief is unable to throw any light on this scenario.
