132 KV tower collapse in Doda
Dodar, May 18: Normal life in Kishtwar district and parts of Doda was thrown out of gear following incessant rains and subsequent complete power shut down due to collapse of 132 KV line on Monday evening.
Reports reaching here said people were already facing hardships due to the continuous rains for last two days, the power shut down in the twin districts added to their miseries.
The twin districts were plunged into darkness last evening when the power supply to these areas was snapped due to collapse of 132 KV line near Pul Doda.
Though the power supply was restored in some parts of Doda district this afternoon, there was no respite for the people of Kishtwar where the power supply was yet to be restored till reports last came in.

“The restoration work was immediately started and power to various parts of the Doda was restored by afternoon”, NPHC authorities told Greater Kashmir. They however said the restoration work of supply to Kishtwar was delayed due to continuous rainfall.
