Although the rest of these photos were shot in a crowded street in old Hyderabad city, this sort of thing is common in many places in India. Wires on electricity carrying poles are tampered with which leads to illegal connections.
It's the same scene here. Electricity cables are intertwined and cut, used to power places without proper electric meters. Crime scene?
The photo below is a close-up of an electric pole and the tangle of wires.
