‘Electricity thieves’ torture Pesco employees

CHARSADDA: The Peshawar Electric Supply Company (Pesco) employees staged protest against the torture on their fellows by the alleged electricity thieves in Khanmai here on Tuesday.

The Pesco officials along with local police were carrying out a drive against electricity thieves in Dara Killay when the villagers got hold of the employees and tortured them. The villagers also roughed up the Station House Officer Irfanullah and other cops.

The Pesco officials closed their offices and staged a protest against the villagers. The protesters chanted slogans against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

Speaking on the occasion, Wapda Hydro Union chairman Ikramullah Khan said that the Pesco had established a Wapda Police Station in Charsadda where 55 cops had been deployed.
