In a very unfortunate incident, a dog was killed as it touched a live wire on the KPTCL smart road near KPTCL samudaya bhavan on Friday night.
The cable is said to be the Smart city street light cable that was live.
The dog which was walking on the road came in contact with the live wire and died on the spot.
The owner rushed to the spot, but the dog was dead. The double road, the first Smart road under the Belagavi Smart city has claimed one more life.
Many use the road for walking since 5 am and what if some person had come in contact with the live wire?
Will the Belagavi Smart city improve its working or as usual will pass on the baton on the contractor or someone else.
