    A three-member bench of Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar has said cement factories will have to pay for underground water they are using.

    Hearing a case pertaining to cement factories in Islamabad on Friday, Chief Justice remarked that underground water is very precious and cement factories are using it but now it will not be available to them for free.

    Also taking notice of the use of underground water by mineral water companies, Chief Justice directed Punjab Food Authority to seek report from all the companies as to how much water they are using and how much they are paying for it.

    Cement factories should be banned.

    Mr. CJP should look into the contracts these Cement Mills are issuing specially on how they are dodging away liabilities in terms of long term employment with health issues. Cement manufacturing is banned in more than 90 percent of the world because the Health bill is more than the Employment bill.

    Also it is suicidal to live anywhere near a certain radius because of environmental and health issues.

    Also industrialized drilling for water will bring massive problems which science is only beginning to understand.

    This is outrageous.

    Who is the Attorney General of Pakistan?
