Madras HC asks Tamil Nadu govt to submit video recordings, documents & reports pertaining to protest against Sterlite plant in Tuticorin


The Madras High Court has asked the Tamil Nadu government to submit video recordings, documents and reports pertaining to protests against the Sterlite Copper smelter plant in Tuticorin. 

Thirteen people were killed in police firing on 22nd and 23rd May when violence broke out during the protest by locals, demanding closure of the Sterlite plant over pollution issues.

A division bench comprising justices C T Selvam and A M Basheer Ahmed also sought details of the intelligence report on the agitation, and directed the state government to submit the same on the 18th of this month. 

The state government had issued an order for permanent closure of the operation of Sterlite plant and the company has recently moved the National Green Tribunal challenging it.
