One more fireworks unit at Ondipulinayakanur in the taluk was sealed on Sunday. Fireworks units need to have prior permission from the authorities concerned to function on Sundays.
As Kannan Fireworks Factory was found functioning on Sunday without permission, Tahsildar Mangalanathan ordered its closure.
With this, the number of units closed in the district went up to 62 out of 648 units checked so far. The drive will continue, said Revenue Divisional Officer S.G. Rangan.
