“Transmission line of WAPDA electric supply system is blown up by extremists in Dara Adam Khel tribal area, Kohat district is plunged into darkness since last two days, two transmission lines were providing electricity to Kohat from Peshawar first one was blown up by militants in Dara Adam Khel tribal area which is located between Peshawar and Kohat two months ago which was not repaired yet, when the second transmission line is also blown up by militants electric supply from Peshawar is completely cut off to Kohat district, now through Banda Daud Shah transmission line WAPDA officials have restored electric supply system in Kohat but due to vastness of the region Banda Daud Shah transmission line can not provide electricity to all the areas in Kohat thus electric supply system is still a failure in Kohat district,” a WAPDA official has said.
