HC: Lower water level at check-dam

The Kerala High Court has directed the Malappuram District Collector to take steps for lowering the water level in the check-dam constructed on the holding of Abdul Latheef, father-in-law of P.V. Anvar, MLA.

It was while considering a writ petition seeking to issue directions for the demolition of the check-dam and water theme park constructed at Cheenkannippala of Malappuram that the court issued the direction. As the State submitted that the water level of the dam had increased, counsel for the landowner agreed to drain out the water. The court also directed the District Collector to seek the service of experts.
