Two buffaloes of a farmer died after being struck by lightning at Mirpur village near here today.

Ravinder Singh, son of the farmer, Sukhwinder Singh, said a short rain took place during afternoon amidst lightning. They had tied their buffaloes in the yard of their house. Suddenly at about 1.30 pm, a loud sound of lightning was heard and in no time it struck their buffaloes. Two buffaloes died on the spot.

Ravinder Singh said the buffaloes were of Mura breed. One of the buffaloes provided milk and the other was yet to deliver. He said they suffered a loss of about Rs 1.5 lakh as they were dependent on selling milk for their livelihood.

Meanwhile, a Congress leader and Zila Parishad member, Harkeet Singh Bhari, Hardev Singh Meerpur, Gurcharan Singh Goslan and others demanded compensation for the farmer from the Punjab government for the unexpected loss.
