Venjaramoodu: A police officer was electrocuted while trying to save his wife on Saturday morning. Assistant Sub-Inspector of Police Training Centre and a trainer here, Harshkumar S, (44), was electrocuted a day after receiving the police medal from Chief Minister for his meritorious service.
On Saturday, around 7 am, Harsh’s wife Swapna, got an electric shock when she came into contact with a live wire in the cow shed of their residence in Mundakkalvaram, near Venjaramoodu. While trying to save her, the police officer too was electrocuted.
