Jalandhar, June 20

Irked over erratic power supply in the ongoing paddy season, leaders of the Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU), Qadian, allegedly made two employees of the Punjab State Transmission Corporation Limited (PSTCL) squat at their office in Kartarpur last evening.

SP Sondhi, executive engineer, alleged: "Nearly 100 farmers went to a power house and made two employees, a sub-station attendant and an assistant lineman, squat. Later, a video of the incident went viral. We got an FIR lodged today."

In the video, the farmers, led by union president Jasbir Singh Littan, are reportedly seen threatening the PSTCL employees of dire consequences if they failed to ensure power supply for eight hours. — TNS
