Four brick kiln owners jailed in Khulna

A mobile court in Khulna's Dumuria upazila sentenced four brick kilns owners to one month imprisonment on Tuesday for causing pollution and operating the plants without licenses.

Additional District Magistrate (ADM) Md Yousuf Ali conducted the mobile court and sentenced them one month imprisonment and fined Tk 30,000 each for running the kilns without official approvals.

“They (brick kiln owners) were running the fields illegally and burning timber defying environmental laws and they did not have any Effluent Treatment Plants (ETP) either,” Yousuf Ali said.
