BAHAWALPUR: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) reports that it has discovered illegal power connections at private homes in unapproved housing colonies in Bahawalnagar, Minchinadabad, and McLeod Ganj.
The agency received a tip that electricity connections in these colonies were provided with the assistance of officials from the Multan Electric Power Company (MEPCO).
After conducting raids, the FIA teams removed illegal power meters that had been installed at various houses.
The FIA official said that complaints against the MEPCO officials involved in the scandal would be sent to higher authorities for action, and cases would be registered against them.
MEPCO officials stated that they were currently creating a list of all illegal connections and would take action against the officials who provided these connections and meters to certain domestic consumers.
