Japan is considering releasing thousands of tonnes of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean from the beleaguered Fukushima plant.

Last year, National Green Tribunal had directed the ministry of environment and forests to install scanners at the gates of the market. But that proposition seemed expensive, so MoEF decided that scrap handlers should keep handheld radiation detectors. But even these have not been procured.
