KABUL Breshna Shirkat (DABS) on Monday said technical teams were ready to restore power supply line in northern Baghlan province, but they were not allowed to do so.

Local officials say that Taliban militants have blown up three power pylons in different areas and 11 province, including Kabul, are in dark.

DABS also confirmed the incident in Baghlan, saying technical teams from Kabul, Balkh and Kunduz provinces had reached Baghlan to reconnect the power lines.

It added the security forces had not yet allowed the technical teams due to militant threats.

Power supply would be restored at the earliest possible if the technicians were given permission to enter the area, the statement said.
