Investigation Launched to Determine Responsibility for Operation Without Shutdown of High Tension Line

An inquiry has been initiated to uncover the circumstances leading to the tragic incident involving Anil Parmar, wherein a bird rescue operation was conducted without shutting down the high-tension power line.
