BANGALORE: The Karnataka High Court on Friday ordered issue of notices to the State Government and other respondents on a public interest litigation (PIL) petition by Ullepadi Ganigarike Virodhi Samiti seeking a direction to stop illegal stone quarrying at Ullepadi near Mangalore.
The samiti said some persons were illegally using explosives for quarrying stones in an area where there was a school and a road.
They said the use of explosives had not stooped even after the Ikala Grama Panchayat under whose jurisdiction Ullepadi came had issued a notice to those using the explosives.
The samiti said the Deputy Commissioner of Mangalore and even the Controller of Explosives had denied giving permission for using explosives.
The Bench admitted the petition and said there shall be an interim order of injunction against the respondents (those carrying out quarrying) if they were quarrying without valid licence. The Deputy Commissioner was asked to file a report.
The Bench adjourned further hearing of the case.
