15 Apr 2018 08:22 PM

The Quepem electricity department was under siege on Saturday night.

People were upset after there was no electricity for more than 24 hours.

When the people went to check out what happened the department officials were not very forthcoming.

This enraged the already angry locals who smashed up the office and burnt an old transformer. The police force was finally called out to keep the scene under control.

Now the electricity department has brought in a new transformer and tried to make some temporary arrangements.
