A major electricity blackout engulfed the cities khyber Pakhtunkhwa since last 14 hours.  

The power outage has inconveniently affected citizens. Besides Peshawar, cities of Noswshera and Mardan are also affected cities. 

Citizens in different areas protested against the pitiful situation especially in the hours of Ramazan.

As people took to demonstrations on multiple roads, they also resorted to burning tyres and blocking roads; however, their stone-pelting left one police officer injured as well.

The officer was immediately moved to a nearby hospital. Then, police forced to use tear gas for dispersing citizens. 

Whereas on the other hand, the Peshawar Electric Supply Company (PESCO) said they have not bumped up the duration of load-shedding but that overloading and illegal connections were the real problems.
