Itagar Nov 8: The Lower Subansiri district administration has prohibited abstraction of forest resources, wanton hunting of wild animals, birds and fishing using explosive, chemicals and electric shocks in the rivers of Apatani plateau. The DC in a prohibitory order under section 133 CrPC issued on Monday said that use of chemicals and explosives for fishing adversely effects the healthy growth of fish cum paddy culture as these chemicals seeps into the rivers which are the perennial source of irrigation. Violators would be pelized under relevant law/act, the order added.
