According to Spokesperson K-Electric, “We have initiated action against power-thieves which also includes 5 theft cases from the area of SITE, where the consumers owe more than Rs. 6 million.

 

Power thieves are urged to abstain from stealing electricity and get their connections regularized, with legal-meters, as soon as possible.
