Mansa, July 28

In a tit-for-tat move, Powercom employees disconnected electricity supply to Boha police station in Mansa district over nonpayment of Rs 5.59-lakh dues after their employees were detained for not wearing mask.

Mahar Singh, member of the PSPCL Employees Federation, said the Powercom employees were sitting outside their office on Sunday, when the SHO came and took away their employees for not wearing mask. Police officials misbehaved with the staff, but released them later.

On Monday, the police started harassing the employees and wrongly accused them of tearing their uniform.

Members of the Employees Federation and Technical Service Union, Boha, staged a protest. Later, DSP Baljinder Singh held a meeting with the Powercom officials.

Boha SHO Sandeep Bhatti said: "The police station's power bill was outstanding, but the issue has been resolved and the power supply has been restored."
