Madras High Court puts a stay in Sterlite expansion project

The Madurai bench of Madras High Court on Wednesday stopped the construction of a new copper smelter by Sterlite Industries.

The stay on construction came a day after 11 people were killed and over 65 injured after police fired on the protesters who were demanding the closure of the Sterlite Copper plant in Thoothukudi over pollution concerns.
