As many as 11 tanneries have been shut down following a directive issued by Calcutta High Court last week. Traffic on the EM Bypass-Park Circus crossing was thrown out of gear for about half an hour on Tuesday afternoon after Trinamool Congress leader Javed Khan blocked the No. 4 bridge in protest against the closure.
Four tanneries were shut down on Monday for spreading pollution. These include Bengal Tannery Industry in Gholam Gilani Khan Road and Dali Industries at MatheswarTala in Tangra. The closure came following a directive issued by Calcutta High Court a week ago.
