Pathankot, June 5

A stone-crusher is allegedly operating without requisite permissions in the mining-rich belt of the Chak Gajju area of the Ravi. The unit is located in the “flood protection embankment” of the Ravi which in itself is a violation of norms.

According to rules, no crusher can be operated in such an area as it would damage the ecological balance of its surroundings.

Deputy Commissioner Gurpreet Singh Khaira said he had ordered a probe. “The crusher will be ordered to shut down if it is being operated without requisite permissions,” he said. To get operationalised, crushing units need the consent of both Punjab Pollution Control Board and drainage department.
