KARACHI (Dunya News) – Sindh High Court has Monday announced its verdict regarding unannounced load shedding case, and allowed National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) to take action against K-Electric according to the law.
The court had reserved its verdict yesterday after the completion of arguments by both parties. The applicant’s counsel Faisal Siddiqui said K-Electric is bound to provide electricity to all users without any discrimination. If one person steals electricity, then the whole area should not suffer from load shedding, he said.
SHC directed K-Electric to act upon NEPRA’s order that was issued on January 22, 2016 in which NEPRA had declared area-wise load shedding illegal.
