Power outage submerges parts of Karachi in darkness overnight


KARACHI: Different areas of the city were submerged in darkness on Wednesday night as almost half of the city faced its fifth major power breakdown within a span of less than a month.

The affected areas included Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Gulistan-e-Johar, F.B. Area, Bahadurabad, PECHS, PIB Colony, Jamshed Road, Jehangir Road, Nazimabad, Gulzar-e-Hijri, Shah Faisal Town, Landhi, Korangi, Malir, and Scheme 33

However, K-Electric, the sole electricity supplier in the city, said that it had received reports of power outages in the city and its teams were working to resume electricity supply.

Power was restored to the majority of the areas after three to four hours but some areas remained without electricity overnight.
