    An expert committee appointed by the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests is inspecting constructions on Rushikonda as ordered by the High Court. The inspections are in response to a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed in the High Court, claiming that excavations and constructions were done without proper permissions. The central committee arrived in Visakhapatnam on Thursday to conduct the inspections. Another expert committee appointed by the High Court had already submitted a report, based on which the High Court directed the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests to address any violations of rules. However, new allegations were brought before the court, leading to the appointment of the current committee. The committee is being provided with necessary arrangements and information by GVMC officials.
