Press Trust of India

Posted: Mar 15, 2002 at 1406 hrs IST

The Supreme Court on Friday imposed a fine of Rs 10 lakh on a motel constructed by the former minister for environment and forest Kamal Nath's family on the banks of river Beas near Kullu-Manali in Himachal Pradesh which damaged the areas' ecology and environment.

A Bench comprising Justice M.B. Shah and Justice Doraiswamy Raju held that the Span Motel, which even took up some areas of the Beas river bed, was liable to pay a fine of Rs 10 lakh for causing damage to the sensitive ecology of the area by building span motel.

Writing the judgement for the Bench, Justice Raju directed the money to be deposited with the state government for its utilisation in the damage control exercise to be taken up in the area.

Asked for comments, Nath said: "I have no comments to offer as I am neither a director nor a member of the motel."
