Taxila: Thieves steal transformer
TAXILA: A 100-KV transformer near Bhattar intersection area was stolen by unknown thieves taking advantage of loadshedding at night in the limits of Wah Cantonment police station. It has been learnt that power supply was disconnected to Bhattar intersection. The people were of the impression that it was part of routine load shedding.
However, they came to know later that transformer installed in the area had been stolen. It is not first instance that the criminals took advantage of loadshedding and stole transformers as previously thieves took away transformers in Taxila, Wah Cantonment and Hassanabdal and other parts of the city. It is believed that the gang of transformer lifters might have links with officials of the concerned department.
