The Tamil Nadu government has ordered for the permanent closure of the controversial Sterlite Copper factory in Tuticorin, which was the centre of violent protests last week that led to the killing of 13 people and left around 100 wounded. The government order endorsed the closure direction of the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board and directed the board to seal the unit and close the plant permanently.
