Case challenging Kundankulam prohibitory order dismissed.

Thursday, 25 April 2013 - 8:27



The Madras High Court Bench dismissed a writ petition challenging an order passed by Tirunelveli Collector on August 11th, under Section 144 of Code of Criminal Procedure, proclaiming exigency within a range of seven km from the Kudankulam nuclear power plant in Tirunelveli district.


Justice K. Chandru also dismissed another writ petition filed by the same litigant G. Sivarasa Boopathy of Human Rights Protection Centre, a private organisation, challenging Valliyoor Deputy Superintendent of Police's refusal to grant permission to the outfit for conducting a public meeting against the nuclear power plant at Kudankulam.


Passing common orders in both the writ petitions, the judge said that he was unable to countenance the petitioner's plea as he was bound by a judgment passed by a Division Bench of the High Court in a public interest litigation petition challenging the validity of a similar prohibitory order issued by the Collector on March 19th.
