Two Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) maintenance workers, attached to its Ingiriya CEB depot, were injured yesterday morning, when they were about to begin repairing power lines at Polgas Junction, Arakawila.

They had gone there thinking that the power was disconnected as they were sent by their senior officers.

Police spokesman SSP Prishantha Jayakody told The Island that the victims had gone there with some colleagues around 9.50 a.m.

He said that the victims had been admitted to the Ingiriya and Horana hospitals and one of them in a critical condition had been transferred to the Kalubowila Teaching Hospital.

Ingiriya police are conducting investigations into the incident.
