K-Electric has initiated rigorous, non-discriminatory crackdown against power-thieves and defaulters across the city. The power utility along with Law Enforcement Agencies (LEA) has conducted kunda-removal drives in several parts of Karachi including Surjani, Korangi, Mauripur, Lyari and Garden, with the removal of over 15,000 illegal hook connections.

 

According to K-Electric spokesperson, “Power thieves are urged to abstain from stealing electricity and to regularise their connections through legal meters as soon as possible.

 

Failure to do so will result in serious penal consequences including disconnection along with prosecution that can lead to penalty as high as Rs 6 million and imprisonment of up to 7 years in line with the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act of 2016.”
