Hyderabad: A PIL has been moved before the Hyderabad High Court seeking to hold the officers and people concerned who failed to take care of unfilled and defunct borewells and impose heavy penalty on them. 

B. Prakash, a practicing advocate of the High Court, moved the PIL bringing to the notice of the court the guidelines and directions given by the Supreme Court  in this regard.

 

He submitted that the Supreme Court had given a series of directions for each state and local authority to follow, but no one was implementing them.
