Benazir Bhutto Islamabad, Nov 12 (IANS) Five police complexes in Pakistan’s Sindh province were left in the dark after the power utility firm snapped their electricity supply due to non-payment of dues.
The Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) Wednesday disconnected power supply to the five premises of the Sindh police for non-payment of electricity dues, The News reported Thursday.

Power supply was disconnected at the Central Police Office on Chundrigar Road, Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Elite Police Training Centre at Razzaqabad, SRP BASE-1 at Baldia town, Karachi Training Institute in Baldia town and the Traffic Training Institute section at the Baldia police station.

Several notices had been issued to the Sindh police against the non-payment of Rs.415 million electricity dues. The inability of the police to clear the dues led to the disconnection of electricity supply to the five police premises Wednesday morning, officials said.
