Excelsior correspondent
JAMMU, November 25: In the much publicized Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by lawyer Dewakar Sharma highlighting various issues regarding the conservation / preservation of the Tawi River, the Bench of High Court Division including the Chief Justice Pankaj Mithal and Judge Mohd Akram Chowdhary led Inspector Police General Jammu and Deputy Commissioner Jammu to file progress reports regarding extent of encroachment clearance and alleged illegal mining still ongoing in the bed of the Tawi river.
The DB further ordered Deputy Commissioner Jammu to inform the court of the progress of the work in order to stop the flow of sewage into the river or the discharge of any waste into the Tawi River.
When the PIL appeared at the hearing, it was reported that, as per the court’s instructions, some encroachments had already been removed from the bank / river bed, but according to recorded reports a large area of land remains to be illegally occupied and the invaders have not been removed.
It has also been argued that the mining of the river bed has been reduced to a large extent, but with the connivance of the administration, a large number of trucks are carrying out illegal mining without any control from any corner.
