Illegal resorts located on Nilgiris elephant corridor sealed
Coimbatore, Aug 12 (PTI) Nineteen resorts constructed on the elephant corridor in Nilgiris district were sealed by the authorities today in compliance with a Supreme Court order directing a crackdown on illegal structures in the area.
The process of sealing 27 resorts began at 10 am amid a tight police security, while action against the remaining 12 resorts would be taken after getting an explanation from the owners and verifying the documents, official sources said.
A committee formed to review the functioning of these resorts was expected to submit its report before the apex court in October, they added.
The court gave the direction after perusing the report placed before it by the Nilgiris district collector, which said resorts with restaurants were operating in the area without approval.
