KORAPUT, India, Jan. 18, 2013 (Local News) -People living in peripheral villages of Sewa Paper Mill, Gangapur, have threatened to lock the mill as the unit is releasing toxic water into their areas. "Farmlands have been damaged by the toxic water released by the paper mill. We have to sustain heavy losses because of this. Many times we have approached factory officials to release their waste water through a pipe but to no avail," said Krushna Gouda, a Gangapur resident. "We will lock up the factory gate for an indefinite period if the demand is not fulfilled," he added.
