K-Electric (KE) conducted a kunda removal drive in different areas of Saddar to curb power theft and illegal connections. During the drive, several illegal power connections, being used for commercial purposes, were removed from Empress Market, Rainbow Center, Saddar Dawakhana, Regal Chowk, Preedi Street and Passport Office areas.
According to KE spokesperson, “The power utility reiterates that illegal connections and encroachments around power infrastructure is a potential public safety hazard and we have always raised our voice against this menace. Going forward, our efforts to clamp down power theft will grow more stringent while we have also identified encroachments around our power infrastructure to concerned authorities for immediate action.”
KE also seeks support from the community to help curb the menace of electricity theft. Reports of power theft may be made by calling at 118 or 021-99000 or through KE’s Facebook and Twitter pages or anonymously via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
