Panipat, March 28

Special teams of the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) on Thursday conducted raids in industrial units, especially dyeing units, in Panipat and Sonepat.

The National Green Tribunal had expressed dissatisfaction over the report submitted by a committee of representatives of the CPCB and local administration on pollution caused by industries in Panipat and Sonepat districts during a recent hearing.

The teams collected samples of effluents and water discharged from the units. Members of the Panipat Dyers’ Association called an emergency executive committee meeting in connection with the raids.

Bheem Rana, president of the association, confirmed that the CPCB teams conducted raids and collected samples.

The special teams had to collect samples from 54 units in Panipat and 48 in Sonepat, he said. The raids would continue on Friday, he added.
