The Department of Environment has imposed a fine of Tk 2.0 million on the Hathazari 100MW Peaking Power Plant for polluting the Halda River by dumping industrial waste.

The authorities also ordered the temporary shutdown of the plant after a hearing over the harmful effects of the release of its furnace oil into a water body connected to the river on fishes within it.

Moazzem Hossain, director of the department in Chattogram, passed the order on Wednesday, reports bdnews24.com.
