MLA PV Anwar Opens His Illegal Check Dam Violating HC Order

Kozhikode : Amid govt preparations to demolish the illegal embankment built by PV Anwar, the MLA opened the check dam himself in gross  violation of an existing High Court order.

The check dam captured media attention following reports that the structure in the hilly region was constructed by the MLA flouting norms.

The Kerala High Court which sought report in the matter was informed of govt consent to demolish it.

Pulling it down would release enormous water and affect local residents. So the Court directed collector to carry out the demolition using a team of technicians under his surveillance.

In open defiance of court order, Anwar today drained out water from the dam without collector knowing it.

Malappuram district collector Amit Meena said “I have not directed Perinthalmanna RDO to take action on opening the check dam. No technical committee has been formed yet for this purpose”.

The Irrigation dept also endorse the information that the owner opened the dam himself though the place is placed under surveillance.
