SHERGARH - The Shergarh Police have registered a case against 94 electricity pilferers.

According to the Lesco Mazharabad sub-division Assistant Manager (Operations), these people were found stealing electricity from the Low Tension (LT) line of Wapda during ‘general checking’ by departmental inspection team. On his complaint, the police registered a case against the power pilferers under section 39-A of Electricity Act. Outages return as winter starts to pinch: As the winter has started to make its appearance felt, the prolonged and unscheduled electricity loadshedding has once again returned, crippling the domestic and business activity.

The town and the surrounding villages are experiencing 8-10 hours unscheduled power outages making it difficult for the businessmen, housewives and students to carry out their activities easily. The people have demanded the government to either end the loadshedding or issue its schedule so that people can schedule their activities accordingly.
