Sangareddy: In response to a representation made by the residents of Edthanur thanda against dumping of animal wastes by Al-Kabeer Exports Pvt Ltd in their hamlet, M Kanakadurga, Senior Civil Judge and Secretary of District Legal Services Authority, Medak district, served notices to the District Collector and certain Pollution Control Board officials on Thursday.

Kanakadurga visited Edthanur thanda on Wednesday -- a day after the villagers complained to her about gross environmental violations happening in their hamlet. She visited the slaughterhouse dump yard and was stunned by the misery see saw being inflicted on the people of Edthanur thanda.

Without minding the stench emanating from pits in which water and animal wastes had got mixed, she spent two hours in the dump yard. Interestingly, the security manager of Al-Kabeer reached the spot in no time, along with the Patancheru police officers who had no jurisdiction over the Edthanur thanda (the hamlet actually comes under the Sangareddy (Rural) Police Station. The police left once they came to know that she was a judge.

She then interacted with the Banjara women of Edthanur thanda and assured them that appropriate action would be initiated.“The management of Al-Kabeer needs to figure out some way to prevent air pollution and water contamination. This is a serious issue. As per corporate social responsibility, they should not only give drinking water to the people, but also conduct regular health check-ups in the hamlet. This is the least they can do for the victims of their irresponsible acts,” she commented, while speaking to The Hans India on Thursday.
