Protest and police complaint regarding power cut in the society. Gurgaon News – Times of India

Gurgaon: insufficiency of water And due to frequent power cuts, the residents of the Sector 67 housing society have filed a police complaint against the developer.
They allege that the situation is so dire that a seventy-year-old man died due to a 48-hour oxygen cut. Ashwani Mehra, a 70-year-old heart patient, died on July 13, said Dhirendra Tavar, president of Ansal Essentia’s Resident Welfare Association.
Renu Mehra, wife of the deceased, said, “He was dependent on supplemental oxygen operated by electricity. But the oxygen delivery system became inoperable due to the outage. Who should we blame… the builder, the administration or us, who have chosen to live in this society?”
“Around 1,500 families are living without electricity for the last two days due to the negligence of Ansal Properties and Infrastructure Ltd. We demand immediate action from the authorities,” Tavar said.
“The tragic death was the turning point. Hence, the residents reached the Sector 65 police station on Tuesday night with a complaint against the Ansal Group. But SHO Vinod Kumar was not present, and when he returned after an hour and a half, he requested that we submit an application instead of seeking an FIR,” said Tavar.
Ravneesh Chawla, another resident, said that the developer should provide safe power infrastructure. “All the residents have paid external and internal development charges. Despite this, we have to face long power cuts without any prior notice,” he said.
Neha Pandey, a resident of the society, said, “I am a mother of two children and both have been asked not to step out. With open electric poles, no security and pathetic infrastructure, how can I allow my children to go out and play?”
RWA members said they have also approached the authorities. Tanwar said, “The other day, we approached Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) with our issues, but it said that our area is not under its jurisdiction.”
Some residents met Deputy Commissioner Nishant Yadav on Wednesday afternoon. Yadav assured them that the complaints committee would take up the matter and hold a meeting in August. “We were not satisfied as we want immediate action, compensation from the distribution licensee and FIR against the builder for negligence,” Tanwar said.
SHO Vinod Kumar of Sector 65 police station said, “More than 100 people gathered at the police station with a complaint against the Ansal group. In these cases the police have to investigate the matter before registering the FIR. If we find anything concrete, we will take action.”
A representative of the builder accused DHBVN. “We have completed all the formalities. We deposited Rs 5 crore as bank guarantee and land worth Rs 9 crore to DHBVN, but it has still not released the permanent connection.
TOI contacted DHBVN MD Amit Khatri for a reaction, but he did not comment. Deputy commissioner Nishant Yadav said, “We will discuss this in the complaint meeting.”
