The incident that took place around 9 am in the area has left residents shocked.
The official said the boy was playing outside his jhuggi number 110 and went towards neighbourhood where a resident was running open water cooler. The boy most probably touched the wire and was electrocuted, said the source, adding that he died.

Son of Md Kaleem, resident of Noor Nagar second pahari, the post-mortem examination of the body is to be done tomorrow to ascertain the cause of death, said the source.

This is not the first incident in the locality.

A few years ago, residents still remember how a toddler had died of electrocution in Abul Fazal Enclave from open water cooler. Then the boy was rushed to a private hospital where doctors failed to resuscitate him.

As summer peaks in India, many people in Okhla and other parts of the country don’t take precautionary measures and run open water cooler.

Moreover, residents lamented that parents too are to be blamed for not looking after their children.
