Shillong: Power was partially restored at the North Eastern Hill University here on Thursday after a severe power crisis for more than 72 hours.
"Power was restored partially at around 3 am," A N Rai NEHU Vice-chancellor said.

The university has been left with no power except for a few gen-set running in the expensive laboratories in the university since Sunday afternoon when lightning struck its main power station.

The damage was so severe that the 3 MW transformer had to be taken to Tinsukia in Assam for repair.
