Power to Souq Khalid cut off

MORE than a month after the eviction deadline lapsed, Kahramaa cut off the power supply to Souq Khalid, in Doha, on Tuesday, leaving over 70 shopkeepers wringing their hands in desperation.

The Qatar Urban Planning and Municipality department had served an eviction notice on the shopkeepers two months ago, with January 11, 2013 as the deadline.

The shopkeepers were expecting Kahramaa to set a fresh deadline to vacate, as is the general practice. When contacted, Kahramaa said that it had given the final notice to the proprietor of the complex regarding the deadline of power supply. (PG 5)
