Bangladesh: People go berserk for power

Outraged by frequent power outages, thousands of people swooped on local power distribution offices in Islambagh, Dhalpur and Shanir Akhra areas of the capital last night and disrupted road and rail communications.


Angry people also attacked power offices in six districts–Narayanganj, Narsingdi, Cox’s Bazar, Manikganj, Sylhet and Sherpur–last night and the night before.

Thousands of power-hungry people besieged the local power distribution offices at Dhalpur at 7:00pm and at Shanir Akhra at 9:30pm.

People started coming out to streets from 7:00pm at Sayedabad, Jatrabari, Shyampur, Koratitola and Islambagh, protesting repeated load shedding during the day.
