Bhubaneswar, Aug 14: At least four district collectors will appear before the Orissa High court, which had ordered eviction of illegal prawn gherries at Chilika, Bhitarkanika and other eco-sensitive wetland areas.

The district collectors of Ganjam, Puri, Kendrapara and Khordha will inform the court about the action taken for eviction of prawn gherries in the co-sensitive areas.

The High Court on July 27 had ordered the four district collectors to appear before it and submit an action taken report. The court also asked the authorities to destroy the seized materials and machinery from the violators apart from filing criminal cases against them.
