ISLAMABAD: Punjab Environment Protection Department (EPD) has sealed as many as 64 stone crushing units operating at Margalla Hills, Taxila.

He informed that the stone crushers were operating through an electric panel set up in the vicinity of crushing site that supplies power to the stone crushers. “We have halted the movement of trucks in the vicinity at the first day of the operation that helped to control outdoor interruption. EPD has sealed the main electric panels in the presence of AC Taxila.” - APP
