Chennai sources reported that bench comprising Justice M Sundar and Justice Anitha Sumanth passed the order staying construction of Vedanta's (formerly Sterlite Industries Limited) second unit in Tuticorin in Tamilnadu, on a petition filed by environmental activist Fathima Babu. Meanwhile the bench also directed the Central government to submit within four months a report after holding a public hearing in the district to invite public opinion on the plan for expansion.



Earlier Stertile had got consent to construct the second unit, as the existing unit remained shut for nearly two months now after the Tamilnadu Pollution Control Board refused to renew its consent to operate (CTO) the unit. Previously on May 17, the Pollution Control Board had reserved its order for June 6 on an appeal by Sterlite Copper challenging its decision.

Moreover the High Court had on May 17 reserved orders on a PIL seeking quashing of the environmental clearance granted to Vedanta's copper smelter unit. Furthermore Fathima Babu in her petition had sought a stay on the environmental clearance to Vedanta's copper smelter unit and moreover she also wanted exemplary cost to be imposed on the company for damaging the environment. Further the violence during a protest in Tuticorin, seeking permanent closure of Sterlite copper plant over alleged pollution issues saw police resort to firing against protesters which has left at least 10 dead and several persons including police personnel injured
