The cable wire was in threadbare condition and had broken and touched an electric transformer beneath, a senior police official said .

At about 8 am, Rajwati had gone to make tea and when she opened the window, she received an electric shock as the current passed through the broken cable wire, he said.

After spotting smoke coming out of the window, Surender rushed upstairs to save her wife but in the process, he also got electrocuted.

Their son Amarjeet also rushed to save them but ended up receiving electric shock.

After a while, as the current stopped passing through, all the three persons fell down on the floor, he added.

They were rushed to AIIMS trauma centre where Amarjeet was declared brought dead, his mother Rajwati died during the course of treatment and Surendar is still undergoing treatment, the official said.

A case has been registered and further investigation is underway, he said.
