AYUBIA:

The residents of Baghan Kalal Kot village warned to surround the office of Galiyat SDO and XEN offices if they do not fix the impaired transformer by Tuesday (today).

The transformer of Bhajan Kala Kot village is out of order for the past two weeks because of which it is without electricity.

The locals said they contacted lineman Azam Khan and Zubair Khan, who demanded backhanders for fixing it. Upon refusal, the officials didn’t send a team for fixing the transformer and the village is dwelling in the dark for the past two weeks.
