Beaching of Blue Lady violates Court’s order: Indian NGOs

High-level sources say that the inspection committee on Blue Lady was under intense pressure to give clearance to the vessel for beaching, as per the admissions by credible sources within Technical Committee on Ship-breaking.

The source that spoke on condition of anonymity referred to intense pressure from within the committee and by the ship-breaker to gloss over facts relevant to environment and safety practices at Alang. The source admitted that Alang does not have the capacity to handle any of the toxic substances known to be present in Blue Lady.
