ISLAMABAD – Pakistan’s Apex Court has directed to register case against K-Electric over recent deaths in Karachi due to electrocution during ongoing Monsoon rain spell.

According to media details, Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Gulzar Ahmed has also ordered to put K-Electric Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Monis Alvi’s name on Exit Control List (ECL) and conduct audit of the company.

While expressing anger over prolonged electricity outages in the metropolis, the top judge reprimanded the concerned authorities and remarked that people are severely suffering from this issue.
