Tribune News Service

Gidderbaha, March 20

The enforcement wing of Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) today conducted raids at the residence, office and two commercial establishments of SAD’s Gidderbaha constituency incharge Hardeep Singh ‘Dimpy’ Dhillon.

The residence of Akali leader Lakhi Kingra, president of the local Truck Operators’ Union, was also raided, besides the union office.

However, the teams of PSPCL officials, who had come from Ferozepur and Bathinda, did not detect any violation.

Surinderpal Singh, Additional Superintending Engineer, PSPCL (Enforcement Wing), Ferozepur, said, “Acting on the directions of department seniors, we swooped down on Dhillon’s house, office, workshop and fuel station. However, nothing amiss was found. Dhillon does not have outstanding power bills. He had last week given an application to increase the load of power supply to his office.”

Sarbjit Singh Kalsi, Executive Engineer, PSPCL (enforcement wing), Bathinda, said, “After getting a complaint, raids were conducted at Kingra’s house and flour mill, but to no avail.”

Meanwhile, SAD’s Muktsar district chief Dyal Singh Kolianwali’s son Parminder Singh paid the second instalment of Rs 5 lakh to the department officials on Thursday. Amandeep Singh, SDO, PSPCL, Abul Khurana subdivision, said, “The power supply to Parminder’s residence will be restored only after he pays more than half of the outstanding amount. He has so far paid just Rs 8 lakh out of about Rs 23 lakh. We have told him to clear the dues before March 31.”
