HC: Stop illegal stone crushers in Sylhet

  • Published at 12:01 pm January 26th, 2016

The High Court has asked the government to remove illegal stone crushing machines in five upazilas of Sylhet immediately as they were causing serious sound and air pollutions.

A HC bench of Justice Md Ashfaqul Islam and Justice Zafar Ahmed passed the order on Tuesday in reply to a writ petition filed by Bangladesh Environmental Lawyers Association (BELA) on August 3, 2015.

In the petition, the BELA stated that there are 393 stone crushing machines in Sadar, Companiganj, Gowainghat, Jaintapur and Kanaighat upazilas and they were being run on public roads, forests, playgrounds and residential areas without environmental clearance certificate.

The organisation sought the court order to the government to halt the illegal machines as they were hazarding public health and environment by sound and air pollutions.
