The blackout swept across the impoverished and energy-starved South Asian nation at around noon, after the transmission line experienced a “technical glitch” that led to a cascade of failures throughout the national power grid, with power plants and substations shutting down, said Masum-Al-Beruni, managing director of the state-run Power Grid Company of Bangladesh Ltd.
