Islamabad: The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) has released an inquiry report on the country’s main power outages, ARI News reported on Tuesday.

On January 9th, several parts of the country, including Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore, suffered a massive electrical breakdown.

According to the report, Guddu Power Station stopped at 11.41 PM due to human error. “Although development work is underway at the plant, the SOP has been completely neglected, leading to a massive breakdown.”

Those responsible for failing to take steps to improve the National Transmission and Transmission Company (NTDC) system have also been named. The report stated that the measures that were supposed to be taken were ignored.
