Daring power metre tampering detected

The special tusk force of Dhaka Power Distribution Company Limited (DPDC) has recently unearthed a daring incident of electric metre tampering. The bill forgery incident through hiding the metre, burning it and rubbing off the reading took place at a tiles factory tiled Euro Marble and Granite Industries.
Tipped off, a team led by Mohammad Munir Chowdhury, secretary of DPDC and chief of the special tusk force, conducted a drive at the factory at Tejgaon Industrial area in the capital on July 2 and found that the power metre had been hidden replacing it with a sealless one.  Though there is a rule to install a new metre through submitting application and fees and testing it and properly and depositing the old one to the store, the factory authorities did not follow the rule.
After detecting the tempering, the team disconnected the power line of the factory.  Following the raid, the factory owner went into hiding.  After a massive search on Tuesday, the old metre, which had been hidden, was recovered and it was found that an attempt had been made to erase the data through burning the metre. A computer examination revealed that through the metre tampering some 42,000 units of electricity were stolen.
