Police and security guards forcibly removed people from land earmarked for a Vedanta toxic waste dump.
Research by Amnesty International and other local and international groups documents the serious and continuing pollution caused by the refinery's operations. Despite the string of decisions against Vedanta, the company has failed to remedy the pollution.
"This decision vindicates the ongoing peaceful protests by the local communities near Lanjigarh to prevent this expansion from going ahead as it would further pollute their lands and water sources," said Amnesty International's India researcher Ramesh Gopalakrishnan.
"The Indian authorities have remained silent on the issues of cleaning up the refinery and monitoring the health of local communities. They must act on this now," he added.
