Kochi: A Division Bench of the Kerala High Court on Wednesday ordered that status quo be maintained with respect to the closure of the mangrove theme park run by the Pappinisseri Eco Tourism Society in Kannur until further orders.
The Bench comprising Chief Justice J. Chelameswar and Justice P.N. Ravindran passed the interim order on a writ petition filed by Ansari Kannoth, Kannur district president of the Muslim Youth League.
The petition sought a directive to the society to pay compensation for the damage caused to the mangrove and the ecology due to the setting up of the theme park.
Though a prayer for a directive to the society to close down the park became infractuous, the petitioner pushed for the plea for compensation
