Reuters spoke with officials at the state-run Bangladesh Power Development Board, who said power transmission failed in the eastern part of the country and then tripped power plants nationwide, cutting off power to the capital, Dhaka, and other major metro areas.
Bangladesh Power Development Board official Shameem Hasan said engineers are investigating 'glitches' in the power system. He said restoring the system could take several hours once issues are resolved.
