Due to power breakdown , reports said, water supply to Karachi was also affected as pumping stations in Dhabeji, Gharo and Pipri areas went without electricity.

“Restoration work is underway and most areas have already been energised,” the company tweeted.

Almost three hours after the initial breakdown, social media users reported power had been restored to certain parts of DHA, KDA, Gulistan-i-Johar and Saddar.
