Vedanta-controlled Bharat Aluminium Company (Balco) will get legal possession of 600 acres of land that it had allegedly encroached upon in Korba district of Chhattisgarh.

The Korba District and Sessions court has rejected the bail applications of three Chinese engineers, who were arrested in connection with the chimney collapse in which 40 people lost their lives at the Bharat Aluminum Company (BALCO) power plant on September 23 last year.

THE three Chinese engineers of Shandong Electric Power Construction Corp (SEPCO), arrested for the chimney collapse at the 1,200 MW Bharat Aluminum Company power plant, have said the responsibility of the construction work lay with a Delhi-based firm and that they were not at fault.

Forty people were killed in the incident at the Vedanta Resources-controlled plant on September 23 last year.
