The Supreme Court on Sunday upheld its earlier verdict asking for putting an end to the use of tannery wastes as fish and poultry feed.
The apex court dismissed a petition filed by the owners of the poultry and fish feed factories seeking restoration of an appeal which was dismissed by this court on December 7 last year.
Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha led a four-member bench of Appellate Division passed the order after holding hearing on the petition.
Advocate Manzil Morshed moved for the petitioner in the court.
Earlier, on July 21 in 2011, an HC bench directed the authorities concerned to stop manufacturing poultry and fish feed from tannery wastes following a writ petition filed by Human Rights and Peace for Bangladesh.
The verdict also directed taking legal action against the people involved in the activities.
