The Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL) has suspended an assistant engineer from the Nagar road division for failing to attend to the power breakdown in the Vishrantwadi area on May 9.
Nishikant Raut, Public Relations Officer, MSEDCL, said that superintending engineer Sunder Latpate decided to suspend assistant engineer S J Puliken after he failed to attend to the power breakdown in the Vishrantwadi area.

However, the assistant engineer had not bothered to respond to the breakdown, Raut added.
