Mirpur : Protest against Load Shedding at Mangla, Kotli, Mirpur : Geo News Reports

loadsheddingdemonstrationkasmir-kotli-_5-27-2013_102670_lMirpur: Police fired warning shots and used tear gas canisters as furious protesters railed against prolonged power outages in Mirpur and Kotli on Monday.

TV footages showed the demonstrators clashing with the law enforces as they refused to disperse. The protesters said they would rally outside the Mangla Power House.

Senior police officials tried to pacify the protesters and assured them through a notification that only scheduled loadshedding of four hours would be carried out in their areas but to no avail.

The demonstrators rejected the notification as they were of the view that it was only aimed at disbursing the protesters. They said that such notifications issued in the past were not implemented.
