Nepra launches probe against K-Electric over electrocution deaths
A press release issued by the authority said senior Nepra officers have been appointed as investigating officers and a time frame of 15 days has been given for concluding the investigation.
Recently, Karachi received torrential downpour that damaged the city's infrastructure due to urban flooding and water accumulation; the monsoon rains also led to multiple casualties and prolonged power outages in large parts of the metropolis.
"These prima facie facts indicate possible violations of Nepra-administered laws, codes, standards and other applicable documents by K-Electric," the authority said.
The regulatory body has ordered a formal investigation under section 27A of the Regulation of Generation, Transmission and Distribution of Electric Power Act, 1997, against K-Electric to ascertain the underlying facts leading to the fatal and non-fatal accidents.
Cases were also registered against K-Electric for deaths due to electrocution.
