Environmentalists have raised the red flag over chief minister Vijay Rupani’s recent announcement to decentralise Environmental Clearance for construction projects. Till now, environment clearance was handled by the Gujarat Pollution Control Board (GPCB), which is an expert body.

Karkare, 53, the then Special Inspector General of Police heading the ATS was shot dead in the Rang Bhavan Lane next to St Xavier's College when terrorists Abu Ismail and Mohammed Ajmal Kasab sprayed bullets at a police vehicle killing top officials besides him.
