Kathmandu: Power supply to three locations severed

Power supply to at least three different locations in the capital city was obstructed after an underground cable was tampered today.

The underground cable used to transmit electricity from new-Chabahil Substation through the overhead power line of 11 KV was damaged during the ongoing pipeline installation work under the Melamchi Drinking Water Project.

The power supply to Suekhdara, Mandikhatar and Chapal Kaarkhana are said to be affected by the incident that took place at 6 am this morning.

Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) Spokesperson, Prabal Adhikari, said a technical team has been dispatched to the site.

He added that the power supply would resume as soon as the cable is repaired. RSS
