SC allows dismantling of Blue Lady

September 11, 2007 11:19 IST

The Supreme Court on Monday permitted the dismantling of the Norwegian ship Blue Lady which reportedly contains toxic material and is currently anchored along the coast of Alang in Gujarat.

A bench of Justices Arijit Pasayat and S H 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 contains toxic asbestos material and was anchored on the sea coast along Gujarat after certain environmental groups objected to its dismantling.
