The Tamil Nadu police have established a special unit to keep an eye on medical trash being dumped in Tennessee from Kerala. According to a press release from state police headquarters, “South zone police have formed a special team to keep a check on the medical waste from Kerala being dumped in border areas.”
Following Chief Minister M K Stalin’s advice to the police to investigate instances of waste dumped along the TN border by Kerala traders, the police have announced further measures.
The police had already begun keeping an eye on large trucks bringing supplies into Tamil Nadu from Kerala via Tenkasi and Kanniyakumari. Police claim that brokers working in border towns are assisting in the disposal of iron waste, chicken waste, and other debris that cannot be recycled, reports DTNext.
