Gross irregularities by filming company in Kamabalakonda Wildlife Sanctuary, Andhra Pradesh

Sree Keerthi Combines, a Hyderabad based film company has committed gross irregularities such as leveling ground by clearing brush growth, spread of quarry dust and red sand brought from outside the sanctuary, construction of huge sets, pulling water with an electric motor and also contaminating the water source, all within the boundaries of the Kambalakonda Wildlife Sanctuary and in the name of filming. The approval had been given by the DFO, Vishakapatnam, but he was not the competent authority to do so. In response to the violations, the order was withdrawn by the DFO and the company fined repeatedly since January. The company filed a petition with the Andhra Pradesh High Court challenging the DFO’s cancellation.
