A mobile court has fined Dhaka Metro Rail Project contractors Tk1 lakh on allegations of contributing to air pollution.

The Department of Environment (DoE) mobile court, led by Magistrate Kazi Tamzid Ahmed, imposed the fine on Wednesday.

The contractors - Tekken Corporation, Abdul Monem Ltd, and Abenikko - were jointly responsible for the construction work of the railroads that run from Uttara to Motijheel under contract number CT5. 

The magistrate told Dhaka Tribune: "The contractors were accused of further contributing towards air pollution through the use of their construction equipment in the open spaces ; therefore we have imposed the fine upon them."

This feat was carried out immediately after the High Court, in a bid to reduce air pollution, handed down five directives to the authorities concerned.
