New Delhi: The Supreme Court Friday dismissed the Punjab government`s application seeking to restrain Haryana from undertaking the construction of a 3.8 km long wall on the left bank of Hansi-Butana canal along the Ghaggar bandh.

Justices JM Panchal and HL Gokhale dismissed the application after perusing the detailed pleadings by both states.

The dispute is over a `toe-wall`, described as a low wall constructed at the bottom of an embankment to prevent slippage or spreading of the soil.
