HC notice to govt for safety steps in radiation-hit Mayapuri

The Delhi High Court sought a response from the Centre and the state government on a PIL seeking a direction to take appropriate safety measures in Mayapuri scrap market following last year`s radiation exposure incident.



New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday sought
a response from the Centre and the state government on a
Public Interest Petition (PIL) seeking a direction to take
appropriate safety measures in Mayapuri scrap market following
last year`s radiation exposure incident.

Issuing notices to Delhi government and the Ministry of
Environment, a division bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and
Justice Sanjiv Khanna sought their responses by May 4.
The court also tagged the matter with another PIL
pertaining to the issue which is pending before it. The bench
was hearing a PIL filed by one Salekh Chand Jain through
counsel Sugriv Dubey.
In his plea, Dubey said that "after the occurrence of the
radiation in Mayapuri market, the government had installed
about 25 micro chips at different places for identification of
articles from which the radiation could be possible but due to
non-maintenance, those chips have gone missing."

He sought the court`s direction to "install machineries
at different places in Delhi to keep a watch on the level of
radiation throughout the city."
