Kochi | The Kerala High Court has banned burning of hazardous wastes like plastic and rubber, which is a punishable offence in the state, and directed police to take action against those violating the order.

A division bench, comprising acting Chief Justice Thottathil B Radhakrishnan and Justice Anu Sivaraman, Friday directed local government authorities to supervise and ensure that burning does not take place in their area.

The order was issued while hearing a petition filed by All Kerala River Protection Council.
