PESHAWAR:


Afghanistan’s Consulate General in Peshawar has been without electricity for the last two days, thus affecting routine business, such as issuing visas to Pakistani nationals.


Afghan Consul General Syed Muhammad Ibrahimkhel Friday told The Express Tribune on Friday most of the consulate’s activities have come to a grinding halt due to the lack of power. The non-functioning computer system sent numerous visa applicants back unsuccessful and worried. According to Afghan officials, the power supply was suspended when a fault occurred in a transformer due to heavy rain in the early hours of Thursday. The Afghan consul general said, “This morning I was told by Pesco officials to wait till coming Monday as it was difficult to repair the transformer.”
