MSEB offices ransacked in Vidarbha

May 18, 2005 19:09 IST

Shiv Sena activists on Wednesday ransacked the Maharashtra State Electricity Board offices at Akola and Yavatmal districts in west Vidarbha to protest continuous load-shedding in the region, police said.

The angry Sainiks broke tables, glasses, windowpanes and furniture. They also tried to blacken the face of an executive engineer in Akola with black ink, police sources said.

On Tuesday, Sainiks set the MSEB office in Amravati on fire.

The Shiv Sena has been holding protests against frequent load-shedding in most parts of Maharashtra, which is going through a severe power crisis.
