    The Islamabad Electric Supply Company (Iesco) on Monday cut off power supply to Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan's Bani Gala residence.

    Iesco has cited non-payment of electricity dues as the reason of disconnecting electricity supply to Imran’s residence.

    Imran's Bani Gala residence has three power connections — two for the main residence and a third for a tube-well.

    Earlier in September, federal minister Khawaja Mohammad Asif had said at a news conference that Imran had been paying his electricity bills despite having given a call for civil disobedience on Aug 18.

    Asif had said that the PTI chairman’s two electricity bills of Rs17,000 and Rs13,000 had been paid. However, days later, on Sept 20, Imran set fire to his electricity bill receiving cheers from a crowd at PTI’s Islamabad sit-in.

    Imran gave a call for civil disobedience on Aug 18 and asked people not to pay taxes and utility bills to force the government accept his party’s demands.
