The Supreme Court on Tuesday permitted dismantling of Norwegian ship 'Blue Lady' reportedly containing toxic material and anchored along the coast of Alang in Gujarat.

A bench of Justices Arijit Pasayat and SH Kapadia granted permission for dismantling the ship on the basis of the report submitted by the technical experts committee appointed by it.

The ship reportedly containing toxic asbestos material was anchored on the sea coast along Gujarat following objections from certain environmental groups.
