More than 50,000 power connections were issued to people who submitted fake identity cards to the Faisalabad Electric Supply Company, it emerged from the records of the Federal Board of Revenue. 

Chaudhry Amjad Lateef, the spokesperson of the regional tax office, said they were looking into the records and they found out there were no records of the 604 CNICs submitted for power connections. We had taken the data for 311,000 connections from FESCO, he said.
