ISLAMABAD:The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) investigation team probing the heatwave deaths in Karachi has cleared K-Electric of any liability, sources said on Sunday.
Nepra in its report has said that the deaths have been caused by the intense weather and not load shedding.
The regulatory authority went on to say that the victims were mostly those people who were exposed to the open sky and severe heat.
The report further says that the power outages in the city have increased due to the rise in demand. The investigation team will present its initial report to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif tomorrow (Monday).
