A dinner outing turned into a nightmare for a family when their 16-month-old child suffered a burn after accidentally touching an electric wire, which had been left carelessly exposed, at Sagar Ratna restaurant in Sector 35 on Saturday night.
Luckily for the family, however, the child’s burn injury wasn’t very serious.
Surjit Bhadu, an advocate, said that immediately after the family settled down, he saw the wire hanging near the sofa and told the hotel staff about it, “but no one paid heed’’.

“Fifteen minutes later, my 16-month-old daughter stood up to reach the table and accidentally touched the wire. She suffered a burn injury on her right hand,” Bhadu said.
When he called the police, the hotel staff covered the wire with electrical tape. “The hotel staff was so hostile that they did not offer first aid to my daughter,” alleged Bhadu.
Police officials said that the child was rushed to Government Medical College and Hospital in Sector 32. She was given treatment, kept under observation for two hours and then discharged.
On Bhadu’s complaint, the police booked restaurant owner Subhash Sethi, his son Nikhil Sethi and staff member Santosh under sections 336 (act endangering life or personal safety of others) and 337 (endangering life or personal safety of others) of the Indian Penal Code. Santosh was arrested, but later released on bail. Subhash Sethi could not be reached despite several phone calls to the restaurant and there was no response to the messages left for him.
