The central bench of National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Tuesday ordered Madhya Pradesh State Pollution Control Board to inspect the slaughter house at Jhinsi Chouraha in Bhopal for its present condition and the process of disposal of waste from it.
The bench said the inspection should be carried after every 10 days till the case is finally disposed of by the tribunal. The Bench gave these directions while hearing the case 'Vinod Kumar Kori Vs State of MP Ors'. The two-member bench included justice Dalip Singh, judicial member and PS Rao, expert member. The next hearing in the case is on January 23.
The counsel appearing for Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) told NGT that though a decision had been taken to modernise the slaughter house, given the issues raised during the course of hearing, BMC will now consider the relocation of the slaughter house.
The NGT also directed the BMC to urgently look into the issue of shifting of the animal market (mandi) used for selling and buying animals like goats and poultry etc on the land near the slaughter house.
