Wayanad: The greens have demanded an investigation into the landslide that sent a 1.5-acre area  crashing into the Banasurasagar dam here during the rain last month.

The land with arecanut and coconut trees spread across half-a-kilometre  slid into the dam from the spillway.

 

 A road made by the KSEB using bulldozers was partly destroyed and the remaining portion has developed cracks.

Green activist Dharmarajan Wayanad said that unbridled land development for tourism violating rules had affected the area. The land on both banks of the reservoir has been grabbed by resort owners to execute projects with the connivance of officials, he pointed out.
