High Court pulls up Delhi Govt.

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday pulled up the Delhi Government for expressing helplessness in tackling use of banned pesticides in fruits and vegetables, saying that it could not ignore a serious matter of public health in such a casual manner.

A Division Bench of the Court comprising Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Manmohan criticised the approach of the State Government to the matter after going through the affidavit filed by it in response to the Court's notice.

In the affidavit, the Government, among other things, said as of now it did not have the particular machine to detect the use of oxytocin pesticide in fruits and vegetables.

The Court later directed the Government to file a fresh affidavit informing it how it would tackle this health hazard.

The Court will now take up the matter on January 19, 2011, for further hearing.
