Hardoi (Lucknow), Oct.30 (ANI): Touching a heater when the electric switch is on, is something that is dangerous, could even be fatal. But Saroj Kumar of Uttar Pradesh loves playing with electric current.

Believe it or not, Saroj Kumar of Parankha Village in Uttar Pradesh’s Hardoi District can touch an electric heater with bare hands and still remain safe and sound. The 29-year-old has an unusual immunity to electric current.

“Once I held two wires while playing but the current did not pass through my body. From that day onwards, I have found that I do not feel the current. Officials from the electricity board have come and seen me sustaining current up to 220 volts,” says Saroj Kumar.

Saroj’s friends and neighbours say that he loves playing with electrical equipments, as he is known for his passion for electricity wires, including high tension wires.

According to Saroj’s relatives, he started his antics when power was first supplied to this village.

“He climbs any electric pole and will hold the wire without feeling its running current. We have asked him not to do it but he is confident that he would always be safe,” said Ramesh Kumar, Saroj’s maternal uncle.

Saroj is now a local hero of sorts and, perhaps, rightly called an “Electricity Man”. (ANI)
