Lahore, July 19 (ANI): The Pakistan Electric Power Company (PEPCO) has disconnected the power supply to former President Pervez Musharraf's Chak Shahzad farm house, after he failed to pay outstanding bills.

PEPCO's Managing Director Tahir Basharat said notices have been issued to Musharraf along with 34 other residents of Chak Shahzad over 'misuse' of electricity.

Musharraf was given an electric connection for his farmhouse on agricultural rates, which are much lower than the domestic tariff. He, however, regularized the connection after much media interference.

The Islamabad Electric Supply Company (Iesco), in its enquiry, had also found that Musharraf has been illegally using the agriculture tariff, and has sought recovery of about 400,000 rupees from him. (ANI)
