A Division Bench of the Kerala High Court has ordered police protection to M-Far Carbons Private Limited for carrying out works in connection with the setting up of a plant at the Industrial Estate, Vazhakulam, in Perumbavoor. The Bench ordered police protection while allowing a writ petition filed by the company.
According to the company, it has plans to set up a factory for manufacturing activated carbon from coconut-shell charcoal, which could be used for purification of water and air. The petitioner alleged that the M-Far Carbon Virudha Janakeeya Samithi had objected to setting up the plant. Hence the plea for police protection.
