india Updated: Aug 30, 2006 15:36 IST

Hundreds of people staged a protest on Wednesday in Orissa's Bhadrak district after three of a family were electrocuted due to a live electric wire, said a police official.

Nari Munda, his five-year-old daughter Asha and 22-year-old nephew Ratnakar reportedly came in contact with the live wire in a field near a grid station in the district's Asurali village on early Wednesday. All three died on the spot.

The protestors placed the three bodies on the road and staged demonstrations demanding adequate compensation to the victims' family from the local power distribution company, a district police official said.
