Coal India unit misled wildlife board: Expert member writes to Javadekar

As Protest intensify over the prospect of a Coal India subsidiary getting clearance to mine inside Assam’s Dihing Patkai elephant reserve, an expert member who inspected the site on behalf of the National Board for Wildlife (NBWL) has asked the environment ministry to amend the minutes of the last NBWL meeting so that the Board’s decision is not distorted.

In a letter to Environment minister Prakash Javadekar, Raman Sukumar, eminent elephant expert and NBWL member, also sought action against North Eastern Coalfields for suppressing from the NBWL the extent of violations at the project site.
