Almost three years after the Saleli incident, the issue on stone crushing units continue to haunt the State and has even knocked the doors of the High Court in Goa. The Goa State Pollution Control Board (GSPCB) which has come under heavy fire after Saleli is presently investigating all operations of stone crushing units and is likely to submit a report to the High Court next week.
