Ranchi: The Jharkhand State Pollution Control Board has issued a notice to the Hindalco managing director and five other officials in connection with an accident in which many people were said to be trapped in debris after a caustic pond of the company collapsed, an official said here on Saturday. “We have issued a notice to the Hindalco MD and five staff working at the Muri plant. Hindalco has violated the set norms of environment,” Rajeev Lochan Bakshi, Member Secretary of the board, told IANS. “If we don’t get proper answer, the board will contemplate future course of action,” he said. The board has cancelled the ‘consent to operate’ of Hindalco and issued notice to two IITs — Mumbai and Roorkee. Notices have been served to IITs, which had approved the design of the red mudwall.
