The High Court has imposed a ban on approval of establishing industries within 10-kilometre areas of the Sundarbans.

An HC bench of Justice Moinul Islam Chowdhury and Justice JBM Hassan passed the order on Thursday hearing a writ petition.

The court also issued a rule and asked the secretaries of forest and environment, land and industries, and the director general of the Department of Environment to submit within six months a list of existing factories within the 10 kilometres of the Sundarbans forest.

Earlier, the writ petition was filed by Sheikh Faridul Islam, president of Save the Sundarbans Foundation.
