[12/11, 10:06] Sekarreporter: ‘Sand sold in the black market’
Following allegations that indiscriminate sand quarrying was taking place across Virudhunagar and Thoothukudi districts, the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court on Tuesday stayed such operations till January 2020.
Hearing a public interest litigation petition that sought an appropriate action be taken against such activities, a Division Bench of Justices M. Duraiswamy and T. Krishnavalli stayed the sand quarrying operations and directed the State to file a counter in the case. The case was adjourned to next month.
