Haridwar's Radisson Blu sealed for polluting Ganga

In one of the first instances of action against a prominent commercial establishment for allegedly violating pollution norms as laid down by the National Green Tribunal (NGT), Radisson Blu, a five-star hotel in the city, was sealed by a team of the State Pollution Control Board (SPCB) on Saturday.

"During an inspection in April, it was found that the hotel had not set up its waste water treatment plant and untreated water was flowing into the drains near the hotel and onto the Ganga. Notices were issued to the hotel earlier as well to have its waste water treated but they were not heeded. Therefore, action was initiated to have the property sealed," said Ankur Kansal, regional officer, SPCB, Roorkee unit.
