Violation of Apex court order

In complete defiance of the Supreme Court directive to abstain from carrying more than nine tons of coal, trucks plying through the West Khasi Hills (WKH) district continue to flout the order. The fragile roads in WKH have to bear the onslaught of the coal-laden trucks that can be seen carrying 18-24 tons of coal. Some trucks are also seen carrying charcoal, production and supply of which has been banned by the Apex court. (Photo by Ronald Stone Syiem)
