Peshawar: Power thieves booked
PESHAWAR: The Peshawar Electric Supply Company has registered FIRs against 32 people for using electricity through illegal means. According to a Pesco statement issued here on Wednesday, the detection and recovery teams of the power company are successfully achieving their targets throughout the province. During its campaign, these teams have recovered an amount of Rs400,000 from defaulters. It was stated that the drive against illegal use of electricity and recovery of arrears from defaulters would continue. Pesco has once again warned electricity stealers to stop power pilferage in the larger interest of the country, due to which Pesco has to face huge financial losses on one hand and on the other hand Pesco’s whole distribution system gets over loaded and the general public faces inconvenience of frequent power break downs and to reduce load shedding.
